I decided to just order the parts and do it myself.  I took the head over to a neighbor who is a mechanic and had him take off the gears, as I don't have any tools to remove them.  I am hoping to have the parts by Thursday.  The trick is going to be if I my feeble little brain can remember how to put the dang thing back together.  If all goes well maybe I will have it back together by the 4th.  Unfortunately that hay has already got rained a couple times, but luckily we have not really got much.

I'm sure you'll be just fine getting it back together.

And if he is anything like me, should have a part or two left-over (hopefully just washers :cool:).

One thing I like about always having a smart phone around, it always has a smart camera....so I document everything I take apart for future reference as I just don’t trust my ability to stay....well, focused :D

[quote name="CowboyRam" post="995682" timestamp="1593383169"]Broke down with the baler, so I pulled the baler in the shop, will kinda, as much of it as I could get in there. At least I was on the concrete. Pulled the pickup head off it; I don't have the tools to take off the gear off so that I can pull the thing apart. Going to take the head down the krone dealer tomorrow. Would like to see it get fixed as soon as possible, I still have 40 acres needs to be baled.]

Any idea as to what cause such a catastrophic failure?

I am not really sure, but I did find the spring part of a pickup tooth.  It fill out when I dropped the head down.  I am thinking that it got lodged in there.

Finally, got my baler back together, took us two days.  Now I can bale my hay that has been sitting sense Wednesday of last week; the alfalfa is starting to grow thru the windrows.  I did pull a bonehead move though, I decided to run it for a bit, started it up, looked back and sparks; the pickup teeth were hitting the concrete as the back of the baler was lower.  I could only get part of the baler in the shop.  It felt good to have a beer after a job well done.
