Some questions

I have a wire tie 47 baler that is NOW working very good. It only has about 1200 - 1500 bales a year run through it. Any specific maintenance I should be doing with it to keep it working good?

I had a bearing go out on the pinion gear (main drive gear on the side of the plunger). The baler was working great right up until the pinion skipped some teeth and the packer fingers slambed into the plunger. I had no hope of pulling the gear off either end to remove the shaft to get at the bearings - ended up paying the local shop to do it - how did they get them off? When they were done they replaced the bearings on both ends of the shaft. The gears are so close the housing that my gear puller couldn't hook onto the gear to pull it.

How long does it take to time a 47? The baler was assembled (bearing installed and "set" to where they thought it would be close) in their shop but they said the guy who know how to time it hadn't been in yet to check over their work. He had another 3 hours (at $100 an hour) in timing it after the the repairs were made.

How'd it go with re-timing your IH 47 baler? Just had the pinion gear bearing go out in my twine tie IH 47 baler this past week. Got the new bearing on order but having a bugger of a time getting the gear broke lose at the moment. Gonna try heating it up with a torch next.
Any insights or suggestions on the timing of the baler would be greatly appreciated.
