Good looking combine for its age! Where are you located? The engine looks identical to the Mercedes thats in the 76 that I just bought.That combine should have great capacity but in my opinion the head is the factor that severly limits it.When Class built that series head they put the knife way too close to the auger and in good thick wheat it wont feed worth a darn.On the later heads they moved the distance between the knife and auger way out and the wheat doesnt stack up in the middle like it does on the older ones.Just looking at your header it looks like it is offset to the right of the combine like the 19' head I have.The first time I noticed mine being offset I thought my eyes were giong crazy but sure enough it was offset about three foot to the right.Is this one hydrostatic drive or variable speed? It also looks like someone has widened the wheels to put bigger tires on them,I have never seen the gussets in a factory wheel.Do a search for Abilene machine in Kansas for 9650 Massey Ferguson head and look at the 20' head they have there for sale.It is a bit pricey but it will go straight on the 96 without a lot of hassle.It is the same head used on the 8450-8460 Ferguson.Looks like a great find and hope it works out good.
