You can do it but you will still have to time the drive chains and adjust the needle to the "new" knotters.
So unless your old knotters are clear shot I would just fix what you have. Also you will not find a good complete knotter assemble very easy anymore. If the knotters are good then the baler is more than likely not going to be scrapped.

I have found a baler that sat out with hay in the chamber and has rotted out. The knotters look ok. Have you ever taken pulled the shaft that runs thru the knotter frames? How hard is it to do? I have a broken frame on the left hand side. Is it possiable to weld it back together while still on the shaft? Thanks for any info.
