I'm sure the gleaner gurus will chime in and give you a better answer than I can but, I will get the ball rolling. I have a K which is almost identical to E3 and have ran rye, oats, wheat, soybeans, and corn through it since I have had it with very good results. A book with the settings is a must but, it does not tell the whole story. Different varieties, moisture contents, and grain weights can cause you to have yor final settings completely different than where you started. Make sure you have the sprockets or pulleys to get cylinder speed down especially if the corn is dry. Cylinder speed to fast can crack corn and also sending to much back through return can show cracking. Don't forget about moving concave bars in and out as needed. I would say that your combine should be able to shell popcorn and get a good sample. You would probably have to move the snapping roll deck plates in fairly close to keep the small ears from being shelled at the head. Have you run this combine in corn before? If you have this will help you in getting it set. If you have never used one before, read your manual and study the functions of machine and this will help in your effort to set. If you have any questions later, post back and we will try to answer it for you. Lot of good fellows and minds on here with a wealth of knowledge that have helped me before.
