Try to adjust the head speed to match what the combine is capable of or try to drive fast enough to keep up with the head and run the corn out the back of the combine???? Slowing the head down to match the combine sounds like a better idea to me. If both the "driver" and "driven" sprockets are the same size the head is running the same speed as the back shaft.
