Well after going to a combine junkyard and doing some measuring I was wondering if this would work? I know I will need to move the lift cylinder and add 1 more which I think is feasible. I know some of you have cautioned me on the head being to heavy but I need a 3 rn corn head and have been told by every junkyard"good luck finding one". My book says a 303 head weighs 3750 lbs. and a jd 343 is 2105 lbs. so I can't believe the throat is that much more in weight. As always any suggestion is much appreicated. Frank Packard

Hi guys really appreciate all of the comments.I'm not going to do this until next year but just needed some more info. Casecollectorsc I understand what you are saying so I probably won't try doing this. As you say money cures all problems but this still is a 45 yr. old combine. If anyone can tell me of a 3rn cornhead within 200-250 miles of Toledo Ohio let me know. Thanks, Frank

After just finishing up on putting an AC 8x20 corn head on a JD 95 combine I think I can help you out. How wide is the outside of the Case feeder house and how wide is the 4400 feeder house? 2 On the lift cylinders dont add just 1 add 2 to keep it lifting even (or it can twist the feeder house). I used long 1 inch bolts to double the ones on my JD and will raise a 3400 lbs corn head at an idle. Send me an email with a phone # and I will give you a call. Bandit

Case 660 has only one lift cylinder, not one on each side. Have to build brackets on axle. Also have to raise feeder mounts on 660 as Case heads have a separate shaft to run feed chain and putting JD feeder on Case mounts is to low for delivery to cylinder. Also Case head is driven by a belt and not a chain, so have to change that. Case mounts are bigger than JD so they have to be rebuilt. Jd feed plate is too short, so different one has to be made. I've put JD feeders on Case 1660's and 1665's and 1160's, so I know all the problems. We posted a picture of one 1660 with a 220 JD flexhead a couple days back.

Casecollecttorsc I didnt know the 660 only had 1 lift cylinder on it(learned something new today) I thought they all had 2. Not many Case combines in my area so its a learning curve for me. Could he use the flat face from a JD feeder house and adapt it to fit the 660s feeder house to use it that way? Just an idea. Bandit

JI Case combines never had a quik attach feederhouse at all. You have to adapt everything from the JD to fit the Case. Besides, the 4400 feeder is much longer and puts the load to far forward on a 660. And a snail would be faster than what you could go with the little 4 cyl. engine and 3 rows in 130 plus corn.

There was a Case with a JD 244 corn head on it on Ebay not to long ago and that looks like what they did. I dont know how it was done but it got me to thinking about it. I wish there was a 660 close to me to look at cause I'll bet I could figuar it out how to make it work. Bandit

That was a 960 Case. A little heavier and a bigger engine. Also a 95 feeder is shorter than the 4400.Didn't say it couldn't be done, time and cash cures anything. You can,t just buy the feeder and expect to go combine the next afternoon.
