Thank you for that information and the pictures, especially with the measurements.  Before you posted, I was getting real close to cutting that rod out and making the plates fixed as oppossed  to them floating as you mentioned. I'll make sure to post some photos of the planter  once I get the plates made.

Finally got the hitch plates manufactured a fitted on the planter.  The planter seems to work okay. Hope to plant corn later on this week with it. Still have some work to do on the fertilizer unit. Thnak for all  your help.

Yesterday my son and I planted three rows of sweet  corn in our garden. The planter worked great.

The planter is great, and wish I could find one(afford one).  The only thing I would change is the sweep cultivator up front.  It will sweep the dirt to the sides, removing dirt from the plant row area.  If needed at all, I would have 2 straight shank cultivators, 3" apart with planting row being in the center. Really, if ground is properly prepared, you needn't have anything up there.
