I"m still confused. Pivot pin in bottom hole on feeder fingers with plunger face centered in front feeder slot on a compression stroke. Front finger is 11 inches from front of slot. From needle home position I tripped bale measuring arm and brought top of needles up flush with top edge of bale case bottom groove flange. Face of plunger to tip of needles measures 2 inches.
Do I still need to remove the cluster gear (timing gear) even though the clutch ring stop is against the roller at this point of the cycle? I realize an adjustment needs to be made, but am really confused with all the "book" dimensions checking out.
I even thought Deere may have sold me the wrong sprocket for the drive but it matched the old sprocket.
