How does this 2-16 snap couple plow hitch to the tractor? Is it missing the "loop" that snaps into the bell housing? Any info is appreciated.

It may be a plow to fit the early WD with a pin style hitch instead of the later loop and bell style.

You have the early WD plow which pre-dates the snap coupler system. 2 pins connect the tractor drawbar to the plow drawbar, 1 of them has a long stem on it so you can work it from the tractor seat in & out of the plow connection to the tractor, the other pin is somewhat U shaped and goes through the 2 holes at the end of the plow tongue and across above the tractor drawbar. But you could use any kind of pin or bolt that fits the holes. 2 more pins attach the lift links. Remove the 2 pins which control the drawbar height so that the tractor drawbar can move up and down with the plow. If the tractor has snap coupler, remove the drawbar bail.

Similar drawbar setup is used on the two-row planter that mounts to the early WD. In that case, some different parts can be used to make it into a Snap-Coupler machine. I wonder if the plow frame is similar enough to the standard pin hitch or Snap-Coupler setup, that it could be converted. Can"t see the frame well enough to tell. I have 3 bottom pin and SC types, but have never seen one like this.

I have two of the same plows. Leave the stock drawbar attached and the plows tongue just pins to it.

I would post a picture but mine is buried under a few feet of snow. But in a few weeks when its time to plow up the field I'll try to remember to get a picture.

You need to unpin the bail so it can pivot, right?

Make one thing a HABIT on any non-snap-coupler AC..

ALWAYS Check the condition of the cotter pins that retain the Main cross Bolt..
IF that should ever come out while plowing, the plow comes up into the seat with you--tail-First..

Snap-Coupler conversions were installed and retro-fitted to most early AC tractors and saved many lives...

I think the Bail is removed..

It is on my Sub-soiler..and for the sub-soiler, you need to remove the PTO shaft, too..
