The knotter in that baler uses the exact same concept as what's used today. The only tolerance that is different is the closure of the bill hook and it's not inconceivable that it's had newer hooks installed. If not you just grind the tab down on the finger so it does close. The rest is simple adjustment.
Re: New Holland super 66 baler - twine question in reply to RodInNS, 05-02-2013 21:31:31
I could not think at the time but it was not the hooks but the twine disk and holder where the problem was, would not hold the twine as clearances were for the thick twine and not thin twine. Binder twine is same thickness as the thin polly twine was and would not have worked due to the tollerances. And nobody had at that time heard of a 9000 twine. It was all baler twine that all balers took except the AC roto-baler that took binder twine, there were never any mention about feet in twine, same as a grain or corn binder twine. Got rid of that baler about 75 and got a 46 McCormick to replace it because it had a thrower on it and the previous year three of us got overcome by the heat handling bales so decided best to get away from handling them as much, and that McCormick did not have the knotter problems that it seams everyone if talking about.
