First thing to check is that there is no roughness on billhook assembly - polish with very fine emery cloth... Check to see that wiper/knife arm is making proper contact with heel of billhook for entire swipe of the arm. Make sure arm is completing the entire swipe clear past the billhook end. Make sure the hook assembly has enough space to allow the twine ends to slide out and under. Is twine tension too tight such that the twine is not being pulled too tight around billhook assy in the knotting cycle. Check entire twine path for smooth flow of twine from ball in box clear through to the knotter. Check twine fingers for proper travel in their cycle.

Did I miss anything, guys?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

How can I set the baler up to simulate hay in it without putting it in the baler? I am guessing I have been hand turn the baler by flywheel so I can see the motion of the knotter. What I have done is set this baler up as a station without moving. Using my ford 850 tractor in neutral low as I can get it to turn the baler and pitch have in it from my big round bale. It works good made some 35 lb bales I could handle without outgoing in the field to pick them up. I do not want to put hay in the baler to test the knotter.

Probably not going to test well without hay. Will tangle up the twine. (ask how I know) You can trip the knotter after a partial bale forms, and then have another person turn flywheel slowly as you watch the tieing cycle. Even at idle tractor will turn it too fast to see what's going on.

OK guess I will make a small bale and hand rotate with fly wheel. I have done this. The knot is being made and moved off the bill. Bill is catching the very tail and clamping on it.

What do you think?

One more thing is to make sure that the wiper arm is going past the billhook about a half inch and do what everybody else said and try loosening off the twine tension at the twine disk
