Been doing something useful so haven't been on the forum for a few days so probably too late. I converted my 820 head to the SCH system and would do it again. Works great. Bought a new IH wobble box a few years ago and it is is excellent condition, so didn't spend extra to purchase a SCH pro drive. Did spend the $ to upgrade to a electrical head control rather than sticking with the original cable system.

Did you go with the roller guides or just wear bars? Were the guards really as easy as they say to put on?(no shimming,just bolt on) I havent bought any parts yet but probably will sometime this next week.

I went with the rollers. In the kit they gave me, the 1st guard (nearest the drive head) didn't have the proper clearance for the last foot or so of the knife assembly. Had to slant one side of the square knife 'backbone" (making it a trapezoid shape) on the driven side which is a separate component that bolts to the main assembly. Easily done with a small grinder. Also used a thin washer on the bottom between the platform and this first guard to increase clearance. Had the correct parts; they just didn't quite work. Not a major issue and you will find it during the final phase when installing the assembled knife. Otherwise it was just a complete bolt-on and no shimming.
