I guess I didn't make myself clear. By rotating the knotter frame upwards after removing the lower frame bolts, you will engage the wiper arm in the knotter "wheel" or what ever it is called. This "engagement' will then move the wiper arm across the lower end of the bill hook. This is very easy to do and doesn't require the gymnastics suggested. In addition a visual inspection will let you know if you have worn parts and a small scale will allow you to adjust your bill hook tension properly. I never ran hay though my baler while repairing/adjusting/timing the knotter mechanism, as it is not necessary.
