is this a ford plow? Looks like mine except the top bracket. Were you able to get your right wheel in far enough for it to work good?

That is a Case plow. I slid the tire over and the lower lift pins are part of a sliding bar setup that allows me to slide the plow over too.

(quoted from post at 00:52:16 12/04/17) If you set up the plow to pull correctly you don't need a furrow wheel or long land slide. If you don't then it will still pull crooked with either. You need to have the line of pull set correctly and that varies with the plow. That is why you need to have the furrow wheel set to the correct width to fit the plow your pulling. It's possible that your plow can drop one or even 2 bottoms and work, but each instance will require changing the hookups and possibly your tire width.


Can you give an explanation of how you adjust a plow to track straight?

The wheel width is what determines the
width of cut for the first bottom. This can
also be adjusted with the adjustable bar
between the arms. Yo ur plow does not have
that tho.

The sideways pull is determined by th e
centerline of pull. On pull type plows the
hitch can be moved right or left to set
that. If the hitch is set correctly the
plow will pull straight. Set to the furro w
side will pull the rear that way, set away
from the furrow will pull against th e rear
wheel or land slides. Your plow doesn't
have those adjustments so if you start
taking bottoms off the pull line will be
off forcing it to pull crooked. Case eagle
hitch plows have multiple settings to get
them to pull straight.

On my cobbled up plow with my 8N if I put the stabilizer bars on it will try to turn the tractor. Now that I put a long land slide on it hopefully it will not do that, and I took the stabilizer bar off after that test.

I got the 3rd bottom off and went out and tried it quick. Back bottom wouldn't go in the ground. I tried adjusting the top link in and out. No worries though as I am going down to one bottom. It will pull two, but I think with only one bottom I can get it lined up and working better

Lets get things straight here!! The plow has an adjustment draw bolt very visible in the pic. The draft bar is an eccentric offset RH to LH and up and down on the RH side of plow viewing from rear. The draw bolt will adjust the straight line draft of the plow, as long as wheel spacing is correct for the plow. Many plows have a lever, instead of the bolt, to rotate the draft bar called a landing lever so the operator can adjust the "lead" when plowing across side hills.

Because I have to move the plow so far to the right, the upper link attaches at a pretty good slant to the right. That probably doesn't do much for
tracking. I am going to change some brackets around so the attach point on the plow is more in the center.
