A worn twine disc pinion and/or too much knotter stack endplay can give you a false sense of having the disc in time if you don't counter-rotate the disc when the adjustment is finished to allow for all the backlash. Additionally, the taper inside the worm gear or the taper on the Short worm gear shaft can have imperfections that keep the gear from staying fixed on the shaft.

Hey thanks Rick, what is knotter stack end play? worn gear sounds reasonable, the baler is now 8 years old and has about 200 bales through it, I am wondering if I should buy new knotters instead of new parts for the knotters at this point.

Knotter stack endplay is extra clearance between the knotter frames and knotter cam gears. 200 bales? 200,000 bales might be time to think about knotters unless thay haven't been greased.
