Below is a photo of my baler plunger and a couple bearings at the bottom. They are clearly toast.....Anyone know a part number or replacement? Also, how do you get these out?

After releasing any bale forming tension then remove any hay from bale case, remove any "bolt in hay resistors" if applicable, block bale compression channels clear of bale case, remove PH connecting rod arm bolts(item 27) from crankshaft. Attach chain to face of plunger head & gently pull PH rearward keeping connecting rod from hanging in opening in lower front of bale case

I'm gonna dig in tomorrow.....Anyone change these and see better results in the bales themselves? Also, anyone know why I keep getting a PILE of orange cuttings on one knotter more than the other? Bales tie tight and hold well, just seems like something is wrong with that knotter or could be.

the bales could get better at least in appearance because you’ll end up with a better knife gap when you’re finished.

both knotters are leaving cut string, one side is just falling off the baler more frequently.
