Further to my response in another thread I feel it would be valuable to tap into and document the collective experience of members in repairing old (1950-1990) square balers. They all seem to be very similar in design but do they all suffer in the same way? What are the issues with parts availability? Where to replace, fix or walk away?
Could be a valuable resource for buyers and repairers alike.
To kick things off, number one issue for me is tinwork corrosion, especially on the main plunger chamber and chute and anything on the underside. Impossible to replace, and can be hard to repair, but some areas are easier than others.
