I really don't know why it broke, other than it was worn out. Maybe it was something I did. There was a lot of distance between the pinion and the cam gear and it was causing the pinion to miss and get stuck on the return so that it would no longer turn. So, I tightened the stack using the adjusting nut. There was still some play in the pinion, so I don't know if the cam was already weak or what. The LH cam seems solid as a rock.

on why did it break: probably the most important question. i had a knotter cam gear break on my JD 224T. When it went through a tying cycle, the knotter gear and the twine disk pinion would try to force each other apart. after scratching my head a little while, i replaced the twine disk pinion and that solved the problem. the old one showed a little wear, but it didn't look too bad. turns out it was. so if you find a replacement gear, i'd sure look into that pinion also. probably the same thing would happen with the billhook pinion if that wears.

There is some ware in both pinions, but that didn't happen until the disc pinion started skipping, which I think was actually brought on by the failing cam, not the other way around.

My friend (as Providence would have it) had a whole knotter assembly that I just picked up. It's OLD and rusty, but the cam is good on it. I spent the better part of the night trying to get it off the shaft. I'll let the oil sit in and try again when I have some more time. If I can get it off of there, I should be good to go, at least until the next part breaks.
