How To Lubricate The Roller Drive Chain On A Baler
  Rex Peterson, Plano, Iowa: To lubricate the roller drive chain on my baler, I used about 3 in. of 2-in. dia. pvc pipe and 2 pvc pipes to make a small reservoir. I drilled a hole in one of the caps to fit a brass valve stem from an old pickup wheel. I removed the valve core. To mount it, I drilled a hole in the chain guard so its above the chain. After I finish baling for the day, I remove all the loose hay and put oil in the reservoir and run the baler until all the oil has run through the valve stem onto the roller chain. This method lets oil soak into the chain overnight so its ready next time I need it.
