My neighbor is having problems with the timing on his Model 10 baler. I have been able to adjust the needles and knotters, but cannot find the corect timing settings to time the flywheel, with the plunger, with the needles. I need the correct proceedure to time these three. I have identified the timing marks but need their correct positions. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.

There are no hash marks on the baler for you to time it by.

First, turn the flywheel over until the packer forks are 3"+/- from the plunger. Make sure the plunger is on the return stroke, and the packer forks are moving to the right.

On the front lefthand side of the bale chamber is a sprocket driving a chain that runs the knotters and packer forks. You will see five or six bolts that you need to remove. There's a plate, and then a gear within the sprocket which you remove using two of the bolts and the reverse-threaded holes in the gear. Once you have removed that gear, you need to rotate the flywheel until the bottom tip of the plunger knife is laterally flush with the packer forks. Once again, MAKE SURE THE PLUNGER IS ON THE RETURN STROKE AND THE PACKER FORKS ARE MOVING TO THE RIGHT!!
Once that is set, replace the gear, plate and bolts and you should be ready to go.
You don't have to break any chains or anything.

I have timed a new holland baler, my uncles model 69, previously after breaking a chain. There is a timing mark on the flywheel, the plunger arm is positioned in the 12 o'clock position, and then the knotters have a timing mark on them. I don't know the specific measurement between the knotter frame and the marks on the knotters themselves, or the 0'clock position these marks are to be set at. The shop manual only covers rebuilding, not ordinary maintenance.

Thats for the pakcer forks, not the needles...
There isn't anything in my manual for the needles, though I would like to know. Broke some chains, and decided I would replace them all. Have the chain, not the time nor do I know how to time the needles with the plunger and packer forks. Considering the needles are pushing 200$ each, I don't plan to bale with it till I'm sure it's in time.
