I found an old Ford baker, model 14-80. It's old enough to have red paint. It was still working when it was parked outside around ten years ago. The plunger is stuck now near the rear of the stroke. Does anyone have any tips to break it loose?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Yes they did. I checked with eBay, the authority. They have literature for Dearborn Balers.

my friendly advice, if you have hay to cut and bale, buy you a john deere or new Holland baler, to use as your primary baler.

buy the old ford and work on it as you have time, if you ever get it broken loose and bailing hay, it can be your backup bailer

"that is just my advice"

if you have never worked with an old baler, they can get on your nerves fast,

just some advice for someone who has hay on the ground and you really need to get it bailed before it gets rained on.

My first baler was a Ford 250 which is about the same thing. I think that to break it loose I would disconnect the connecting rod from the plunger head so that when you are applying force to the head you are not pushing the gearbox as well. I would then apply the most striking force that I could to something like an 8x8 against the head. You will want to pull the plungerhead out the back, and it will need new wood slides. I made my own out of hardwood.

I would try posting this on Tractor Talk.
Much larger knowledge base there.

Arvin,Maybe clean any and all old hay out of it ,then spray the plunger and slides down with some diesel fuel in a pump up garden sprayer,then grease all fittings and slides.Then use a hydraulic bottle jack blocked up inside the bale chamber to the plunger if needed.
