Hi i bought a 740Cf super flex header with Hydraulic cutterbar flotation and can't figure out how to adjust it. It's on a 2011 cr 9080. if anyone know how to adjust it please let me know thanks

I think it is one of the reel buttons you press while holding the shift button (neutral unlock button).


I know it requires the shift button.

Electrical harness is connected from the combine to the header?


The header is setup in the monitor? Go to Toolbox -> Head1 and Head2. Make sure all settings are correct for the header.

There is a Header Type module (6 pin Weatherpack with a molded over rear end) on the header. This sets the combine to one or 5 settings...Corn, Draper, Grain, Pickup, Other. The wiring pattern to this module determines which it is, as each wiring pattern results in a different "sense" voltage. I suppose wiring could cause a "type" problem, but its unusual. Normally a broken wire would result in a "undefined header" error.

Is it possible this head had or has "off-ground" drag rod sensors under it? I know on our Headsight off-ground systems, we add an adapter harness in between the combine and head, deliberately change the header type to grain. Just a thought.

It actually shouldn't matter which header type it is. I know that on a 3020 Grain head, pulling shift is supposed to turn on the valve to switch to the pressure adjust. More likely, the wire to the "swap" solenoid on the head is broken, or the valve is stuck. If that valve doesn't work, the reel will go up/down instead.

I would also check your settings in Toolbox>>Head 1 & 2. There may be one to turn on the flex pressure adjust. Lots of stuff that can get turned on and off, can get complicated sometimes.

By unplugging the Module, you essentiolly throw your combine into "Undefined Header", which lets you setup stuff in the monitor however you want.....but also won't necessarily reset to those settings the next time you connect it after having another head on it.
