    Bad news I’m afraid. The header won’t actually fit as the lugs on the top are wider apart than the wiking and Marge headers meaning it drops right over the feed roll housing. Although my thought was if your plan was for a field working display you may be able to sit something under the header which wouldn’t be spotted if there was crop in front of the actual header and just have the forager sat right up close. But up to you.

    The first picture is the Marge 960TT and the others are the Wiking 870 where I found the feed roll housing on the front moves easier and it might be easier to try my idea.
