I agree with Retired Farmer. There's no reason for the 2 knots not to be at the same distance from the end of the bail unless maybe the wiper arm didn't push knot off of the billhook. After all there is only one needle lift shaft that powers both billhooks and twine discs at the same time. If baler is only miss tying a small percentage of ties then it usually requires ""adjustments not parts replaced"".

Since the bale was most likely loose, the string and knot could have been slipped on the bale to miss alien it with the sister knot, it is virtually "impossible" for the knotter to do this on it's own. As for the young mechanic, he was in over his head from the start, it takes a special amount of insight to repair a knotter, and not many young guys have this or ever will.One of us old guys can make them look simple to fix, but are un-able to tell some one "how" to fix them, it's like a door opens up and we can see things that others can't, my door opened up for me when I was young,about 26, when I was at a Deere knotter clinic, they had a movie that showed the knot being made in slow motion, then showed in slow motion the things that happen when a knotter "misses",,it was like a revelation to me...
