I own a 2008 9770 Deere combine. We changed the head gasket

Customer Question

I own a 2008 9770 John Deere combine. We changed the head gasket last year and it ran last fall but got harder and harder to start. Then it got where if you ran it a little while and stopped the motor, it would have to sit for about an hour before it would start again. I ran the combine during wheat harvest and kind of crippled along. I changed the turbo aquisator (spelling?) and it sounded like it ran okay. I went to start it today to get ready for corn harvest and it won't start. The purchase of this combine has been a terrible experience. It has about 2000 engine hours and 1200 separator hours. I'm at wits end...especially with a crop ready to harvest. Your help would be greatly appreciated as our local technicians have not been able to solve the problem. Thank you. *****

Customer: I think that is about it.
