Forum,
Today I posted more questions concerning the IH No. 8 Genius trailer plow. One of the questions dealt with the hitch release mechanism. Working on it today I do not believe the release is completely in tact. Does anyone have a good pic of the complete hitch release? Any and all info is appreciated.

Thanks for the info! Got some good pics of the release. Seems the plow I have is missing parts for the release and I may have to fabricate a release. If I can not I will have to figure out a shear pin/bolt system. If you have any leads on a release I would appreciate the help. Thanks again.

I don't have any spares I can part with, I'll ask around but I think those are pretty common. I got my plow free for rescuing it from a fence row, might run an ad looking for an entire plow to get parts off of. Or if you know anyone in the IH club to pass the word.

There is a guy who advertises in the photo ads, or at least he used to. Steve Smith is his name, IIRC. He always has several ads for plows. He also deals in parts and will sell you an entire drawbar with a complete hitch release, assuming he is still in business.

Just checked the photo ads. Oh yeah, he's still around. Looks like he's stepped up his game. The bulk of the 77 photo ads for "plow" are his.

Forum,
In the process of ordering a hitch release from Ohio thanks to the help from the forum. Will keep you posted on completing the upgrades on the IH No 8 plow.
