I am furious about trying my darnedest to get the baler timed now after breaking the knotter drive shear pin. Read the book and read the book. Plunger head in CENTER of front hay tooth opening. Set hay teeth to 15-1/4". Unhooked MAIN drive drain to get hay teeth set at 16-1/4. Trip knotters and it wants to hit the plunger stop !!!! What am I doing WRONG ???? You can call me (308)-763-1265 to beat this into my head for a better understanding. Acts like its 180* off. Thanks . I am reading the OP manual too.

And make sure you are timing and measuring on a compression stroke.
