I screwed up and sent wrong older video , have one with pickup running and no squeak , lol.

she almost made  it out of shop today but not quiet! 
Got my nose piece , hitch , drop pin , bale weight indicator , light wires , all arranged ,

Shimmed up auger belt to proper tension and got pulleys running true.

all chains are on and operating properly .

NOW THE HARD PART DIALING IN THE NEEDLES , needle brakes , timing , 

then time the feeder fork.

after that should be ready for wire !

That is a piece of art, Tony!!! Looks fabulous, and sounds like a watch running! 
Only thing that I am curious about is that it doesn’t have a wind guard? Is that not an issue out west?

Looks better than new Tony! Nice job.

Yes.  Probably the best-looking baler I have seen.

Thank you for sharing the video.

Thank you Alan , I hope I can get it to tie like a watch ! lol lol 

I think by wind guard you mean the spring loaded fingers that hold down windrow as it comes up reel ? It’s here ready ,just keeping it off to make it easier to reach things on Baler .

we still have four shields to install but they will go last , along with a piece of sheet metal that goes over the knotter clutch that squares sheet metal in back .

No good deed goes unpunished ! Lol lol 

worked all afternoon to time feeder fork , should of been simple , read op manual ten times over, think I got it , however , cannot get pinion sprocket to go in . I have cleaned all , it all fits nicely off but going on it binds on woodruff key 3/4 of way in , I do not want to pound it more then medium taps with rubber mallet , guess I’ll go get a new key today and try it that way ! HUMM !

On Happy note have all my lights wired , grounded and working as should .

BTW, the timing on feeder fork is the shorter of the three forks ( first one on left )needs to be 2” above face of plunger approaching on compression stroke. Got it perfect gears mesh perfect , but that little devil will not go in last quarter inch .
