not sure you guy's will care about this or not but I thought it was really neat to have this kind of history on one of my 1660's, I am the second owner of this 1969 machine and the first owner was very picky about his machines he ran three 1660's on his farm and had six total from 66-70 when he bought this last one, I am not sure how much of this you can read but as they were harvesting and he found some thing that would need attention later, he wrote it down to be addresed in the off season then after the repair was done he crossed it off, by the way they cut 5000- 6000 acres a year with the three 1660's and cut Barley and Wheat in northern MT, sorry for the long story just thought it might be of intrest to some of you, by the way when I bought this machine in 1998 it had 2398hrs the meter reading in the last pic is from the last day of harvest 2011 cnt

How are you running the JD heads? Do you have any pictures of your adapter?

I use a quick attach feeder house off a newer 105 JD. Iadd a 1 inch piece on each side, plus slide larger pipe over the pivot points to make it fit the case saddles. Also have to make adapters to lenghten case lift cylinders and make feed plate longer and wider. Been using them that way since 1980.

That is really inventive savvy. Could you post a picture? I gave up on my 1160 because of lack of parts availability. What do you use for parts? Don

We have run them long enough that most parts can be made in shop stronger and better than originals. Belts and bearings can be bought at local bearing supply house. Also replace tinwork, such as hopper bottom, grain auger bottoms etc. with stainless steel 20ga. Only drawback to combine is hopper size. Even with 2foot extension, cant make it 1/2 mile in good corn.

I have to admire your tenacity in keeping the Case combine heritage alive and kicking. If only the company supported our collective efforts a little. Don

That's really neat my 1665 combine I have dad bought new and was one of the last case combines to roll off the assembly line and when dad bought it he traded in a 830 low profile and to this day he wished he never did that it came with a 4 row 30 inch corn head and a 15 ft platform. I wish I could come up with a 6 row corn head for him cause he cause not holding out for the 6 row corn head.
thanks for the neat story

Ill have to get some pics of it for you guys in the shed. But dad bought the combine in 1969 or 1970 im not sure he custom combined all over southeast nebraska with it. We would go cross country for something and he would point at a field and say I custom combined in that field for such and such person. He would always have something interesting to say about the people. He has a automatic header control on it out of canada he put on a year or two before the robot head controls became popular. I came along in 1986 and by then the 80s had taken its toll on dad and the farm so all I got in on was riding with dad in the combine on a two quart water jug. (Hard to believe I was that small) I remember various repair work and getting old enough to clean the walkers out after wheat harvest then the biggest reason dad bought a different combine was the walker bearings are getting real loose. I tried to find a set but I've had no luck along with finding a 6 row cornhead. Id love to get it out and fixed up and back to glory with a 6 row head and pick a little corn with and let dad relive the good old days. P.s. I forgot to mention the metal inspection tag is still hanging on the bar beside the steering wheel in the cab. I hope you enjoyed the story of our 1665 ill try to get some more pictures of our equipment for you guys.
