How big a hay crop we talking here? Dollars worth? If it is over 1000 small bales I would scrap that thing, get a good NH and don't look back. Only one guy in 40 is using s Ford baler. Maybe 1:70? I do xxx thousand SSB's at 3-4$ apiece and I am not goint to let them get rained on while I shop for baler parts. Even if you do get it running it is a time bomb. Cut your losses.

Very small operation. I've got about 3 acres that I plan to bale. Got another 3 that I want to add.

My first reaction (in rage) was to scrap it and start again, but since the season is done for me, I might as well take the time to at least try and fix it. If you find a craigslist posting for a 532 in Lower Alabama (LA), you will know what happened.

OK, six acres. Your area, lots of rain, with proper P&K you could get 4.5 T per acre. Call it 30 Tons. At todays hay prices that could be as much as 7000 dollars. Want to risk that on a 500 dollar baler? I think not. Look further down the road. Buy a good baler. It will be worth twice what you paid for it in 12 years. My 275 bought 13 years ago for 1500 is worth 3000 now, of course I put some into it. It will drop 210+ 50 lb bales of alfalfa in an hour.
