Customer Question
Have cih 1660 combine...

Have cih 1660 combine w/gremlin in electrical system and getting worse. Started w/volt gauge & oil pressure gauge, when one worked the other did not, replaced oil pressure sender on motor, ignition switch,& last year fan blower motor ass'y in cab. Combine late model w/cummins engine, also feeder reverser. Now gremlin has progressed to lighting system also, the other night only way to fold unloader auger in was to shut off all lights-- ready to pull hair out. Any advice would be appreciated-- thanks Max

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

1660 combine w/cummins engine, don't have serial in front of me, but am told only a few serial numbers below 1666

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the agriculture mechanic to know before I connect you?

That should do it-- thanks
