IH 80 Combine in Sorghum

Was wondering if anyone has used an IH80 or IH82 in sorghum. My IH80 is currently set for soybeans and does nice job. Other than setting the machine speeds and cylinder, is there any other modification to make for sorghum. I have plain boards (no teeth) on my reel. Was going to try 10 acres or so.
Thanks

The cylinder speed would be a little faster and the chaffer and sieve would be closer but the fan speed would be about the same. The biggest problem would be that grain sorghum heads tend to fall off the header after the sickle cuts them off. Most growers use "milo guards" as we called them in Kansas. They are rods that extend the snake heads out about a foot with wires between them so a cut off head will ride until another one pushes it in.
Without something you will drop a lot of heads.

Read though this for some more info.
