Alright, got this plow home, and got the part I needed, show up against the shed. It's the casting that when you pull the clutch rope and there is a little 'finger' to stop the trip lever. On the plow it's broke off, so got another one which isn't.

I thought by undoing the bolt on the bottom and a little heat it would come off the axle, but maybe it's not supposed to, and even if so it's so froze on maybe easier to just switch axle's and be done with it. I don't want to be to aggressive with it since it's cast and bust it.

Next question is, my tires are set for 38 inch rows and hate to move them in. I didn't need to for my #44 plow, it being 2 16's I could slide the hitch setup enough on the plow it works fine. This #52 being 2 12's though, I made it so it works, but am I asking to much?

What's weird is on my 44 you can slide the bar your hitch bolts to any which way. On the 52 I thought you could to but there but it only fits one way, or else you flip it and it fits that way to, but no left to right like on my 44. Unless someone drilled a hole in that part of the bar to make it fit.

Everything comes apart- especially when one part is steel, and the other part is cast! LOL.

Aren't you funny Smile - my thoughts exactly. I am going to take it apart some this fall/winter, work on restoring it. So I would like it to come apart. I wonder if I dunk it in a pail of motor oil or something if it would help separate it or not. Then try heat sometime again.

I tried taking off the same piece on my 44. Wouldn't budge. I would just change the whole axle.

If your wheels are set at 76" on center, and then 76-14=62 between wheels, which means the center of the tractor is at 31" from the furrow wall. The center of the draft of the plow should be around 15" from the furrow wall, so you have 16" to divide between the plow and tractor. You don't need to move the plow hitch as much as what's pictured, you need to slide the tractor drawbar over some also. That's not unreasonable, you can leave the wheels where they're at.

I guess I don't understand your statement about plow hitches. Your 44 hitch will look different because it's a hydraulic lift plow.

IHCPloughman, I think your right on just replacing the whole axle. Maybe a little bit more work but not much and don't risk breaking the cast piece, which is what I am after.

In the plow manuals I read though they all state to leave your drawbar locked in the straight back position and to flip it upside down so it's in it's highest position?

What I meant about the plow hitch, is between my 44 and 52 yes they are different. In the picture, see the bar the whole hitch is bolted to then the two irons are attached at the beams? Well on my 44 you can move that left to right, by a bolt hole, or by two bolt holes, and place it where ever you want. On the 52, I tried doing that and the holes don't line up! But there is one spot where say the holes are 2 inches apart, it's like someone drilled a hole, or else it's factory that they are 1 inch apart. What I mean is there are 3 holes closer together, then the rest are all even spaced. So I had to turn the bar end over end to get my plow offset enough to plow with my 38 inch wheels.

Am curious is all 52's are that way, or if the 12'' frame is different or something or what the deal is. But it doesn't just slide left to right one hole at a time the way my 44 did to get it set right. I will go over the math like you say and maybe I need to change it some more, but the furrow wheel with playing around with the angling bar on the hitch is setup about right now. But still looks like the tail-wheel is being pulled into the furrow wall when sitting on the tractor plowing.

Thanks.
