Hello again,


already got the digital version of the operators manual and I have started to go through the whole baler but now I have two problems:


First, the drain plug on the gearbox is stuck. Even tried the pipe+wrench but didnt work. All suggestions welcomed.


And second, the feeder fork timing is a little off. The manual states that I have to remove the chain but I already loosened the chain tensioner sprocket and managed to push it all the way up but I still cant get the chain off in order to move the timing. Am I missing something?


Thanks for your help,

I would try a little focused heat on the drain plug.  Shouldn't take a tremendous amount to loosen the thread sealant, then it should come loose easily.


You could possibly remove your idler to get enough slack to change your timing.  If not, just find the master link and pop it apart, change your timing, and then re-connect.
