    Was ondering if the rake arm assembly on this machine has been replaced with a Quality rake assembly. A while back they had a problem with the bronze bearings installed in these rake arms. On my macines, they bearing wore out prematurely. The rake arm would ride up, and a weldment on the arm would rub on the rake shoe lever assembly. (part # 12-250265, page # 60 in my parts book) ,sometimes preventing it from turning freely, but not always. If that is not the problem, I would check the cam follower bearing on the hook selector, part # 12-100410. Sometimes only a portion of the bearing is gone. You need to make sure the WHOLE bearing is there. Usually this causes the rake hook to engage when it is not suppose to. If someone adjusted it, when a broken area was against the cam, that would cause the problem you describe.
    I got it ! I got it ! Oh damn
