We are rebuilding a massey ferguson #3 square baler and are trying to get it in time. There is a timing diagram on the plunger cover that tells how to time the feeder fingers with the plunger, but what about the knotter timing? I cant find any diagram or info on timing the knotter assembly any info would help???

Owner's/maintainence manuals for these are still available from your Massey Ferguson dealer. I had a #3, #9, #10, and #12. The manuals are excellent, and under $20 when I bought mine about 10 years ago.

Those old #3 are as good or better than a lot of New Hollands and John Deeres but they don't seem to get any respect. I know a a few dairies that put up a lot of hay with them and for the most part they didn't miss a beat if they had at least marginal care. They last dairy I worked at had been running two Massey #3s, they traded one off for a New Holland (can't remember the model would of been early 1980's) I think the old #3 was putting out more hay with less grief than the new New Holland, the only reason he traded "up" was trying to get into bakers with kickers on them.

I will look at my manual this evening, I had a chain for the feeder let loose on #3 on my last bale last year. I repair the chain, and bent front tine assebly, timed the feeder and she is running again. Do you have a parts source for your #3? I love this old baler makes nice size bales, and is real fun to run behind my old Farmall H.
