Anyone have a fix for massey 2270 xd flywheel shearbolts
We are only getting 50 to 100 bales from one shearbolt. We've reshimmed the flywheel several times, put a new bush in the flywheel, tried grade 8 bolts. What else can we do??

I know nothing about that baler specifically. But when you say you have tried grade 8 bolts, are they long enough that the shank is in the shear plane, rather than the threads?

Is the shear bolt hole elongated or smeared? If it has sheared a lot of times, especially with the wrong bolt, the mating surfaces may no longer be square and flush, and the bolt would pound out with every impact of the plunger. In that case, you could possibly drill a new hole elsewhere.
