Torquing the plunger knife nuts

257 Views 11 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  slowzuki
According to my manual, the plunger knife should be torqued to 98 -133 Nm at the three mounting points. However, I can’t see how a torque wrench would fit to torque the uppermost nut to the spec.

Am I missing something? Any tips greatly appreciated.

The only bolt I would worry about is the top bolt and nut in the photo. If you cannot get a box end wrench on the top nut, you need to grind some of the material away from the horizontal plate next to the nut. Early models did not have enough space between that plate and nut to get a box end wrench onto the nut. Even the newer balers are a tight fit.
