Re: Case/IH Headers

A 1063 with the greaseable stalk rolls are fine, they are just something to grease every day You should put a CIH 3" knife kit on your 1020, it is a very good knife. You should ck the wobble box bottom ball for play, see if the cap is still on the bottom ball to, grease call push them off.

Re: Case/IH Headers

Yeah there sure isn't anything wrong with those corn heads...

we have a 83 and 85 model and we get along great...yeah 3 pumps of grease a day but we hardly have ever messed with the bearings...

no worries..

they are really great corn heads.

Better than the 2208's from what ive heard.

Thats why the new corn head 2408's are basically back to the 1083 design.

Actually a 2408 is the same as the 2208 just made for xx10 series. the new heads are 32xx for 88 series, 34xx for 10 series, and 36xx chopping head

Re: Case/IH Headers

We had a 1680 with a dirty fuel tank (the filler cap got left off once ><). Pulling the tank out would have been best, but there is a lot of sheetmetal around it and it was going to be more trouble than it was worth. I don't know about the 1460, but the 1680 had a screen at the outlet of the tank that was getting plugged. We pulled that out (along with a corn leaf and some silks) and that let a lot of the gunk get to the filters. We never could get it completely cleaned out, but after a few filter changes it got better.

Re: Case/IH Headers

We had left the cap off of a JD tank(several times, it seems), and it would get full of chaff, straw, etc. We always drained the tank, didnt remove it, replaced filters, but still would have occasional problems, seems we never could get ALL the chaff out of the tank. What we finally did, unhooked the fuel lines, plugged the holes, took the drain plug off of bottom, attached a water hose to bottom of tank, and just let it run! Sounds crazy, but it floated all the crap up and out of the tank at the top! After a thorough flushing that way, we ran some diesel through it, put drain plug back in, re-attached fuel line, poured in about a gallon of diesel treatment(for water droplets we might have missed) , filled with diesel, and back to cutting. Never had a problem with it again, unless the cap was left on, AGAIN! (lol)
