If you"re talking about putting a flex head (not floating cutterbar like you have now), from an F3 on an F, it is a major upgrade, and spendy. You need the control module, $800 and NLA, plus the wiring harness that goes with it. I recently upgraded my M2 to an M3 system, found a used module and a harness from an N6.

IDK if the F would even have the basic harness that the module hooks in to. I doubt it, cuz you need the header height control option on the console. I think you"ll have to stick with the robot. Check with the folks at the combine talk show directory.

After further thought, I don"t see how it could work on an F. The F has hyd valves controlled by a mechanical linkage to the levers in the cab, and the robot is controlled with a mechanical cable between the hdr and the robot by the window, which ties into the hyd system. The 2 and 3 Series have electric/hyd valves, controlled by electrical switches. That"s what the harness is used for. Electric raise/lower switch is on the hdr, sends signal through the module to the electric solenoid on the hyd valve.

You could physically attach a flex head to an F, and control it by hand with the lever in the cab. Then you"d have the right head if/when you find an F3.

On my M2, updating it to a 3 Series was very serial number specific in regard to module and harness parts numbers.
