I got a old K and it a good little combine and we also have a E which is getting ready to go to the scrap yard. And my question is will the header swap over to the K? also what other parts should i save off the E

We had an old K to do IP beans with, it worked very well for those jobs. A neighbour had a old straight cut head off an E that did fit the K. The only issue is the E used 4 latch pins, 2 on the top and 2 on the bottom, that would snap into the feeder house. A real pain to change the head on the K as you had to be 100% aligned before it would fit on the K. We modified the E head by adding the lift hooks on top, and removed the 2 top pins that made the head mounting much easier.

Before the E went to the scrap yard we took off all the sprockets on the shoe/beaters/etc as they were in better shape of our K and matched right up. Did the same for feeder beater, main seperator clutch and even the straw chopper. I would recommend salvaging anything that is in good shape as most parts are interchangable.
