Hi Rob, It is a few years since I had to work on IH knotters but if I understand you correctly, if you spin the knotter trip wheel until it reaches the trip position and then if you turn the flywheel in the correct direction the knotters will not trip and do a tie cycle? Is that correct?
The assembly is called the "bale length control" and it is shown at parts at:

There ar a couple of springs involve, 1 to cause the dog to trip and the other to return the bale control lever to beginning of bale again.
I suspect you accidentally knocked off the trip spring or the mechanism is frozen up with dirt and may require cleaning or lubing with your favourite penetrating oil.

good luck

Thanks, that makes sense, one thing when i went on the case parts site it stated no description for the 430 baler although your link works for the bale length detail, any ideas on how to get the other pages of detail

Hi Bob, the web site was designed for todays kids with ipads/iphones so you have to click on "no description" link and then an index will appear in the right hand window then click on the index and the parts page will open and don't miss the page 1 of x pages and arrow to scroll through the pages of indexes. Not the best web site but it works.
