I"ve just bought an old PT7, and it needs to have two bolts replaced in the bracket that holds the bearing on the end of the steel roller (on the side opposite the cutter). This bracket was replaced by the previous owner with bolts installed from the inside out (nut on the outside). This looks nearly impossible due to tight clearance. It looks like they should be carriage bolts installed from the outside in (nut on the inside) which would be possible using a long set of needle-nose pliers to hold the nut to get it started. Am I thinking right about this or is there a better way?

Mine is the same way but it doesn't effect the ability to crimp the hay. It would be possible but a major pain in the butt. The result would most likely give you a less evenly matched surface and decrease in function rather than improving it. If I rebuild mine, I plan to grind it down to the original drum and lay horizonal strips of flat bar the lenght of the drum and MIG in place. This would make it alot easier to even it up without decreasing function. My thoughts.

The original bars are not flat bar but light channel. I have replaced a few when they came off completely. I couldn't find channel the right size so I split square tubing. One reason for repairing is that broken, bent, loose, bars will tear up the rubber roll.
