I guess I didn't make myself clear. By rotating the knotter frame upwards after removing the lower frame bolts, you will engage the wiper arm in the knotter "wheel" or what ever it is called. This "engagement' will then move the wiper arm across the lower end of the bill hook. This is very easy to do and doesn't require the gymnastics suggested. In addition a visual inspection will let you know if you have worn parts and a small scale will allow you to adjust your bill hook tension properly. I never ran hay though my baler while repairing/adjusting/timing the knotter mechanism, as it is not necessary.

Gymnastics, sorry I'm just a dumb city kid who never baled any hay til a couple years ago. Did'nt know a bill hook from a bilford, did'nt know a cordholder from a cord of wood. While I can read very well and have pretty good comprehension, the manual did not put a good picture in my head. I needed to WATCH it do what it does to better understand how it all works. For me simple is usually better. And my gymnastics did just that. gobble

Everyone learns differently some use a book and others need hands on. All types of people are needed in this world. Different ideas how to approach a problem are also needed. Keep the ideas coming no matter how small this is what I love about the people on this forum.
Thanks for the assistance.

If you can post a picture of what the knot looks like tha tmay also help us help you. I have a Baler manual that has a good bit of trouble shooting info so a picture would help me figure out which area to tell you to look at

OK lesson 101 in adjustment to knotter. Do you have picture of where to place the scale and how much tension is correct? Can you tell me what type of scale and where to place it?
Thank you
