I stumbled on this web page on how to setup a Brinly plow:
Preparing Plow for Use:

Could some of you that use plows check it out and critique it?

I may be plowing and tilling @1/4 acre this spring/summer and while I have no experience plowing, I know that a proper setup makes a world of difference.

I'll most likely be using a Bolens 1886 for this.

ETA:
The ground I'll be working has never been plowed.

That's an excerpt of the original Brinly plow manual.
A copy of which can be found at GTT here:

I don't think the plow has to float up and down much. I think it should have room to float side to side a few degrees to find it's own running angle. Also, you need to make sure that the right hand plow edge will come right to the side of your last furrow; in other words, don't try to take too big a bite with the plow by having it too far to the left.

The brinly plows were designed to operate with out down pressure. You may want to try a manual bypass valve or something that allows you to have a "Float" position. On the other hand, it would all but eliminate the need for the fine tuning we all go thru. Trying to get it to work "Just Right" has caused many to add 20# to the plow for a little more gravity down pressure.
