I too used to run a 5800. Ran 10's of thousands of bales thru it.
If your belts are not turning when you engage your pto, that is your first problem. Those belts have to turn.
Like others have said, weave side to side when starting the bale. The biggest secret to running a 5800 is to work on the end of the bale, keep them flat and level and the center will take care of it's self.
Those old balers do take some getting use to, but once you figure them out, they are good balers.
