I am currently fabricating a sleeve hitch and then going to mount a single plow I found.  I understand to block the left wheels to get the angle. Where do I align the share?  I believe I read in a thread here that the bottom edge should align to the inside edge of the right rear tire. I also think I read that the rear of the blade should be 1" higher than the tip of the blade.

You are correct, the outside edge of the plow should be inline with the inside of the tire.

There is just one thing your doing wrong.Your tip to heel right.Blocking wheels is for setting up 3pt hitch plow not sleeve hitch plow.

Actually, you do that for setting up a sleeve hitch plow also. With a 3 pt, there are a couple of extra adjustments, but it works well for both.

I don't follow .You must have different kind of sleeve hitch.My case sleeve hitch or plow ether one has any adjustment you can make blocking wheels.The brinly sleeve hitch plow is already set at angle to run flat when tractor tires are in furrow.

From what I understand, your sleeve hitch does not adjust the angle, the angle adjustment is on the plow.

What I'm telling him if he is going to  run a brinly sleeve plow.You do not block up wheels.Brinly is already set at angle no adjustment to make or can be made.This is side to side not the 1 inch landside to point angle.

I am not saying that the plow does angle. It was just my two cents on the subject.

Ryan I did not mean to offend you or getting smart with you.When you said adjustment on plow I don't know if you have sleeve plow or any plow.I was just trying to explain how a sleeve plow is made with the 5 to 6 inch angle drop for furrow.My apologies to all on this post.If Wade,s plow is not sleeve hitch style he will have to block tires up to get the hitch bracket at the right angle.
