A coulpe of other things to check are the condition of the wedges and what I call the fish plate restrictors in the chamber. Check the hay dogs, there are six of them on this baler. I would also check the spring that keeps the measureing arm tight aganst the measuring wheel. The early 346s use a friction type measuring arm and not the saw tooth type measuring arm used on the later ones.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I personally don't see how hay dogs or side resisters can affect the length of a bale.

Too much air pressure in LH tire can affect bale length if in a rough field. Measuring wheel components were altered at SN 285,000. The stop(parts key #23) was made heavier and spring(parts key #4) was added. I have seen extra weight added in severely rough fields.

A number of years ago our 336 would make varying length bales and the problem that time was worn bushings Key#6.

Actually replacing the worn bushings(#6) while leaving the brackets(#5) where they were will cause more pressure to be applied between roller(#21) & sector(#26) causing less slippage between roller/sector as measuring wheel turns. This pressure can also be adjusted to a degree by moving brackets rearward.
