A lot of different information on this baler out there. Some claim it's a New Holland baler, others say it was made by New Idea, other information says it was designed by Long and Ford had someone build it under license until Ford bought the production rights outright. More than one post claims that the knotters are the same as a John Deere 14T or 24T. Since you're out of the hay business for the year I think I'd look at John Deere and New Holland knotter parts and see if there is any truth and if the JD or NH parts are close enough to be made to work. Watch E-bay and Craig's list, there is one on Craig's list for sale near Wausau Wisconsin.

Deere, Ford, NewHolland, NewIdea and Hesston all used the same basic Deering knotter ~licence~. I've got a Ford 532. I've got a Deere 327. They tie using the same concept. That IS NOT to say that the parts interchange. They don't. Not even mabey. Not a little bit, at all. For whatever reason the 532 DOES use the same bill hook as the NH 273, IIRC. I know it crosses to one of them of that vintage because I stumbled on that info when I needed hooks for mine.
The main differences with the Ford and others are the drive style and layout of the trip mechanism and needle brakes...
