I have no idea, but wonder if it's part of a gang plow that had guys walking around on a platform letting each bottom down.

Pulled by a big steam engine.

I thought that too, either that or from a Riding plow pulled by a horse.
Can't quite read what's on it, can you make it out in person?

Did not dawn on me till you mentioned it Brian but that would be my guess as well. Next time I see one of those I will take a lot closer look.

From the pic, it appears to say "Grange A08". The line under and to the right of that starts "Loun..." There might be more, but that's where the pic stops. I would agree that it is part of a larger whole, or is at least incomplete as shown, as I do not see a viable hitching point. Were you able to determine the size of the plow?

Blount Plow Works had a business in Evansville IN till about the the 40s. It looks like it might possibly bolt to a sleeve hitch???

I did some Googling, and found:

That it was made by the Blount Plow Works. Blount started in Evansville, IN in 1867, and changed their name to BURCH in 1927.

Now, given the above, I would hazard a guess that your's was made in 1927 or earlier. So, it wouldn't have been for a GT.

I can't find anything specific about the A08 model.

It is for a Standard Twin.

The two bolts highlighted in post #9 drop down through the implement mount [drawbar] on the tractor making the bolts verticle and moving the adjustment handle back toward the operator. If I remember right the rectangular bracket that is loose is upside down in the pic but it bolts to the cradle and the reason it is so wide is for side to side travel for steering.

Thought id deleted these but here a newer model one and if you look closely one on a 35 twin, its the same one as in the pictures with the same printing on the castings.
