Well I received most of my plunger parts and started assembling them last night. I was looking at the book for adjustments. So my question is How do you get in the bale chamber and make adjustments that is called out in the book? They want me to measure distances from the rails and walls. Now I am not a super big guy but come on. Is there a secret to this?
Thanks In advance as always guys. Matt

I'm not familiar with the book or settings for that baler... but in general terms... you start by chiseling all the rust out from under all of the guide rails and reinstalling them tightly. Then you shim the lower right rail away from the stationary knife to a certain spec.
Once that is done you start with plunger adjustments. Usually the first adjustment is the left rear which sets both the camber angle and side clearance of the plunger. This is adjusted as the knives pass and it's probably something like 30 thou... Follow the specific procedure in your book. The final adjustment is usually the wear pads on the top of the plunger that control it's vertical movement/rotation...
Given you have a 320 and the speeds it runs at... you best make sure you get everything DEAD ON ACCURATE or it'll probably go boom on you sooner than later.

My baler is a NH 269 and I just rebuilt the plunger. You're right that some of those measurements seem ludicrous. Finally, I adjusted things to where there was as little movement sideways and the plunger traveled full travel without binding and left it alone. I did check again for excessive side movement after a couple hours of use and all seemed good. I did try to get the hay knife clearance as close as possible.The old machine runs pretty good now. Next big rebuild will be the pickup reel system. bjr
