The only New Holland baler to have a wad board was the 66 or S66 And something was wrong if you got hit with that wadboard.

YUP, it was a 66. I just saw one where a guy is starting a engine in the baler and it shows the wad board, again without the protective shield.

No Leroy, The wad board was ment to come out the side around 16.18in. It had a shield on one side so as to protect someone walking near it, but the shield was gone. That part of it worked fine. One side tied fine. Dad had a guy come out from somewhere to work on it, and he got it to tie, but it quit again and dad had me to tie one side all through the field nearly.

That distance your wadboard was sticking out so far explains a lot. The wadboard cover iw only 12-14" outside bale chamber and about equal to outside of right tire. Somebody did not understand how to adjust the wadboard and a wonder it ever fed the hay in adjusted like that And that tells me why the cover was missing. And that tying problem was easy to fix. Just pull plunger out and replace the wore out wood slides and it would have tied good. We had a 66 from second year they were sold new untill 76 when we got a different balerbecause we wanted the thrower with3 of us being overcome with heat that last year handling the bales. Later on I got 2 parts balers to assemble one good baler but never got it done till after I had to quit farming. But a simple wadboard adjustment and plunger slides replaced and you would have had a very good baler. I had the wadboard out many a time so I know how they were supposed to be adjusted and that tying problem got so bad was about to give up on it untill Dad decided to try a different repairman. He took one look at it running and said replace those slides, Dad said don't believe it but replace them. He did and without ever touvhing the knotters it tied perfectly.

ALSO, Leroy, Im just guessing at how far the wad board came out. I was in HS then and im 72 now. I never measured it then, and am just guessing at it now.

Leroy, IF the wad board was the problem, how come one side tied bales perfectly and one side didnt?

It would not stuffthe hay in equally and do like they say banna bales now and one side tighter than the other could make tying problems but it would with not stuffing equally want to tip plunger making it wate harder on the wood slides on one side, leaving that side to jump up and down more keeping it from positioning twine correctly to grab and tye. Wadboard out too far would not fill left side of bale chamber as full as the right side. The chain that drives the wadboard has to be timed correctly, then there are 3 adjustment spots on the chane about 2" either way from center that is where 99.99% of the time it should be kept. Was away from computor for the past week.
