    Default Need picture of NH271 gauge wheel mount

    I bought an older NH271 locally and the gauge wheel on the pickup reel was mangled. I could really use a picture showing how it is attached (correctly) to the pickup reel. I have the manual and parts list but the drawings don't show it all that well.

    Also, any pictures of a bale quarter turn mechanism would be very useful.

    Thanks for all the help.
    Glenn.

    There is a bracket on the baler pickup that accepts a flat piece of stock that has a series of holes drilled in it for adjustment and at the bottom it will have a spindle welded in to carry the wheel/tire. I have seen these balers without that guage wheel option. Ken Sweet

    You can get good figures of all your Ford & NH ag products on the NewHolland website. Here's the gage wheel. A 1/4 turn chute is just that. Make one up from an old chute. Slice out a rectangular section slighly more than 1/2 the bale width and about 3/4 of the length.

    Thanks for the replies. I got it fixed, in place and working. The previous owner had bent the 1/2 steel bar that the axle was mounted to and put a wrong sized bolt in the hole.

    I straightened out the steel bar. Welded in a new axle that fit the roller bearing gauge wheel and ran a tracer tap through the mounting hole threads to clean them.
    I then mounted the whole unit with a nice new shiny 5/8 bolt and all is well.

    I hate it when good machinery gets treated like that and not maintained properly.

    Now I just have to figure out how the pickup rope threads through the system so I can lift the pickup when turning. The spring, the rope guide and the spring mouning bar are missing.

    Thanks again.
