Hello, my name is ***** ***** I would like to help you with your question.

Unfortunately there is no make or model listed so I am unsure what you are working with. I will post some basic information related to John Deere 9000 and 9010 series combines below. If you have a different make or model please let me know and I will do my best to respond accordingly.

If this is a John Deere 9000 or 9010 series machine then the most common cause of the header raising slowly is the #23 o-ring (located in a groove in the housing 3/4" inside the opening) under the #31 plug in the below diagram.


You mentioned that after reassembling the feeder house won't raise and the auger won't swing. I assume by your description that the reel raise lower, for/aft are still working correctly? This could indicate a problem in the unload relief valve block. Check to make sure that #14 o-ring in the below diagram link is installed correctly.


Please let me know if this is something other then a 9000 or 9010 Deere machine or if it is and further assistance is needed.
