I was thinking about trying to put a moisture sensor on my L3, but can't figure out what to use or where to put it. Also would like to run a 920f JD head, I know you can get a bish adapter but what about the head. do you have to find one with/without fore/aft reel, how did the dial-a-matic work and would it be comparable to the header controls on the L3?

We run a JD 920f on our L3. Last year was first year and we liked it but maybe even better this year.

First, the only way we could get the AHHC to work was to buy the Headsight Inc controller module (all the JD AHHC stuff won't talk to the Gleaner AHHC). After a few bugs it worked real good. The guys at Headsight are really good to work with and know what their doing.

You may already know this. You also have to find the hyd tank/pump/gear stuff off of a Gleaner head to put on the JD head because the JD head on a JD combine runs off the combines hyds- the L3 doesn't. A little fabrication and it looks neat and factory.

The reason I think this year the 920 will run better is because of the Bish. Last year bought a used Bish that was supposedly the correct one. It wasn't. First time we used the used one we had a bulldozer not a combine. Took it off and modified to work but I think the distance between the header auger and the feederhouse finger feeder was too far. Tried this year to buy a new Bish (success). Put the new one on and the spacing is better. I think it will feed better. I would likely buy new to have comfort level you're getting the correct one.

Thats good info, I should be able to use the hydros off my 316 that is shot. Anybody have any info on moisture sensors, it is a lot harder to get a sample from the tank of an L3 than it was on the little K2.

One other thought. We changed size of drive sprocket on the JD header to try and get the auger speed on the JD header to have the correct RPMs. That's because the Gleaner has a different RPM on the feederhouse than a JD combine. If this makes sense and you want more info on what we did PM me. We also changed the header to have the Gleaner slip clutch on the JD header and took off the JD slip clutch that is on the drive shaft of the header (at least our JD header was like that). We spent a fair bit of time doing all this but it works, looks good and was worth it.

Be interested if anyone has info on moisture tester too.
