The part puts tension on the bill hook.The nut should be a locking type nut.Take a close look at the other knotter to see if it has the right nut on it.Take a look at the bearing on the back of the bill hook.If is the old bronze type with flat spots on it you have to replace it.The new bill hooks have a sealed roller bearing on them.It takes a long time to get good at fixing knotters.To late now but it looks like the nut was rusted tight.Penetrating oil and a little heat may have gotten the nut off with out breaking the stud.

36 coupe, Thank you for taking the time to answer.
I am not concerned about the bill hook as it has nothing to do with getting that pin out. But it is the newer type with the bearing roller on it. It is not the old type with the bronze. You are right and I did put PB Blaster on it every day for a week. I pulled on it with very little pressure and the bolt twisted in two as you can see in the picture. You are right and I wish the bolt had not broken, it would have made my life so much easier. But the bolt did break.

My original question was and still is that I need to get that broken bolt out. I do appreciate your time in answering this question. Bob

If your main concern is getting the broken bolt out... most likely you will need to drill the bold and use an easy out unless there's enough above the surface to get a vice grip on it and apply some heat to the knotter frame. If you have to drill it... I'd probably remove the whole knotter stack from the baler taking VERY carefull note of where all those spacers go exactly. Then you can get clear access to the knotter frame to drill it. I would not disassemble anything beyond that unless it's absolutely necessary and that includes leaving the twine discs alone.

The sad part of this saga is that you probably didn't need to do any more than adjust the tension on the twine holder spring... and didn't need to touch that arm at all.
