Would someone tell me how to get the manual swing bar to move on a JD-327 Square baler.

What are you calling a "manual swing bar"?? I've seen that listed in any JD 327 baler manuals nor do I have a clue what you're referring to.

Do you mean the front hitch? Adjusting between road travel and field use?

Yes sir that's the one. It seems to be locked in the field position and I can't budge it but it's loose if you shake it. Just won't swing straight ahead.
Thanks for the reply

The main tow bar which swings left or right for field (offset) or towing straight ahead.
Thanks

I'd like to help you, but I'm afraid there's no hope for you...If you can't figure out how to swing the tongue on a baler, then how in God's name are you ever going to figure out how to run the baler itself??

Well sir: I can run the baler and put out a pretty nice bale. The bar has never been moved out of field position in 20 some odd years, and removing the pin dosn't work. So I just was asking in case there's some little thing I'm missing.
Thank you

I"d jack up the front of the baler frame, unhook from the tractor, and try to move it. That long in position? Maybe pivot is rusted solid.

I have tried that and I'm afraid your right. Years back I saw my brother try to back up the tractor and swing it but that didn't work either.

Thanks again

I used to have a 336 and IIRC, the crossmember under it could get bent up from hitting a rock or something so that it kind of pinches off so that the pole cannot slide.

Thank you, it's either bent or rusted from what I can see. Our fields do have a few low spots.

On my NH 268, I release the latch, put a good sized wedge, chunk of firewood, etc, behind the right baler wheel, and gently back up the tractor. Can get quite a bit of torque to move tongue that way.

Thank you, I considered that but more worried about the tractor than the baler. Think I'll just keep spraying with wd40 or blaster and try again this spring.

I have a few nasty ideas about anchoring the baler with a couple of tractors and whacking it with something bigger....after checking for bent, binding parts, like another poster suggested....but maybe the best is to clean out all hay, hit the pivot with an oxy torch, with a rosebud tip..........maybe stick some candlewax on it as it cools, and try moving it. Wax melts between stuck parts, threads, etc....and loosens things. WD40 used to be good, new formulation is xxxx pizz.
