Welding on the corn head
For all of these modifications you could see where the orignal parts had been installed; wear marks and drilled holes and so on, so I wasn't working blind -- I had a template where to put things, but I didn't expect to have to do this work; I figured if it was a JD 443 corn head it would just fit a JD 7720 combine. Silly me!
I'm still 2 to 3 weeks away from combining, so this isn't an emergency; I'll put the whole thing together tommorrow and test it on some corn to make sure it works. Hopefully after this harvest season I'll clean the combine out, grease the head and then park the whole thing in the barn until next fall. I need it to work for about 15 hours this year. I'm looking forward to it!
