I must be overlooking something. the knot ties, comes off the bottom of the bill hook but hangs on the tongue.I filed the point down alittle. no roughness. wiper moves far enough about 1/2" past.

If you need a new billhook I have one My IH dealer would only sell me a pair and I just needed the one. They are a little spendy in pairs. Gordo

I had the same problem with my 269.My problem was the worm gear that runs against the cam had about 1/4 inch of play in it.It would let the twine disk go out of sync and let twine ball around the bill hook.Put a new gear on and went back to sisal twine.Made almost 500 on the last cutting and never missed one.Good Luck.

I went thru this earlier this year with a NH 273. First two things is to make sure the bill hook is smooth and the knife arm contacts the bill hook just right and has the correct movement. If yours is already correct on these areas, I"d check the tension on the bill hook cam. Also check to make sure that theres not a flat spot wore on the roller on the back of the bill hook. Another possible cause is the twine slipping out of the twine holder. But the most important thing is to have the owners manual and do what it says. Check every last spec and make sure its right. I"d also recomend buying New Hollands service manual for knotters. Lots of good information in it.

Think Casey has it about covered. I've fought mine all summer. Replaced bill hook, due to flat spot on roller, reworked where roller runs, checked all aspects of knife arm, polished bill hook. Now knot comes off OK, but is missing grabbing needle twine, and simply ties around it.
Have reworked needle twine fingers, reset needles. I'm about out of ideas, and definitely swear words!
