Nice score Doug, I am thinking Simplicity walk behind or similar.

Ditto on the walk behind: the adjusting handle would be hard to use from the seat of tractor.

Can this

Doug , I would think you could use  that Brinly sleeve yoke on your 8 " plow , you may have to redrill the rear hole in your plow beam as the hole centers may be different .

Another thing to consider is ,  I think the Brinly yoke is made of 5/8 " thick steel where it bolts to the beam , I'll have to measure one of mine to make sure,  how wide is it between the two beams on your plow ?

I have an Ohio Steel plow which is similar to a Brinly , but the yoke is only made of 1/2 " thick material where it attaches to the beam .

Doug, it's a Simplicity #990024 plow. Here's the instructions and parts list for it:

Today after work I spent a little time on the plow, everything is seized that is suppose to turn but with some effort, penetrating oil, heat, I was able to free everything up, the depth adjuster was the hardest to loosen up and the threads on it are damaged. Good enough to work but ???.

I took the Yoke off the 10" Brinly and it is thicker than what the 8" plows beams are, but they spread out enough that it's going to work. Need to enlarge 1 hole and drill the 2nd, just like Jaws said above.

The moldboard itself is rusted real good so I need to smooth that out, I'll use and angle grinder with a coarse cup shaped knotted wire wheel.

All in all it's looking like it's going to work on my sleeve hitch tractors.

Here's a good picture of a nice one like mine, looks almost the same, I don't have the yoke and mine is a 8" picture is a 6.5"

Doug, the yoke on most are twisted 10*... At least the Brinly plows are. Does this yoke give you the twist?

Doug, this would be the perfect plow to use on the Electric Massey.  10" is quite a pull, but this 8"er would allow longer battery life, and still make a good furrow.

The yoke that it comes with I don't have and don't know if it does.

The yoke I'm putting on it is from a Brinly 10" sleeve hitch plow and I hoping it works.

Going to bring both my plows to your plow day just in case it doesn't.

That's what I'm hoping for, I want it to work.
