Houston, we have a problem. I got a chance to get Dad;s MM108 in the shop to install the slot hitch off of the ford 120 and they have different transaxles under them. At least the back have a different widths where the hitch mounts. Here's a photo of the 2 hitches on top one another.

Sorry, I didn't realize that the photo wasn't very good. The MM hitch is on top of the Ford slot hitch.

Alan, no the top one is a stationary draw bar and the bottom one is the slot hitch.

Tried to find a photo of the Ford, but can't find one.

This picture looks like our ford transaxle, I see the difference in the mount area.

As to the mount, this will be going on a Massey, so I'm going to have to mount it differently from a Ford.  Mainly I needed to know how the tang slides into the slot, are there shoulders to keep it from pivoting from side to side, does it have adjustment bolts like a Brinly style, and how close does the plow mount to the tractor.  That last, is the plow kind of out back like a Brinly, or is it close, like it is almost hooked to the stationary drawbar.

The plow is just boxed into a steel slot. And, a pin inserted to hold it. I would go with maybe a 1/16" clearance all around. The length from the tractor is "enough so that the tip of the plow clears the ground when transporting". However, more critical, is how high you place your mounting point above the ground, because you will have no adjustment for that!

As to height, I have another Massey with a sleeve hitch, so I will chose an appropriate height based on that.

That's what I'm saying the Jacobsen plow may have been designed for a hitch that sits at a different height. Possibly lower than most? Maybe mounts under the rear end instead of behind it? My plows have a shank that comes straight out. Resulting in a plow that digs deeper. I don't know how deep you want that plow to go.

I have a MM 108, MM 110, MM 114, Ford 120 , and Ford 100  The Fords are parts for the MM's The 10 Horse, 12 Horse and 14 Horse have the same mount on the back the MM 114 is the only one with a slot hitch the others have stationary drawbars. they all have the same mount on the rear end except for the 108 the others you just unbolt the standard drawbar and the slot hitch will pin on.

This is my wheel horse slot hitch plow.

.attachicon.gifimage.jpg

It's from the late sixties. Made by brinly I'm sure. But quite different than yours. Mine is a 12 inch.
That's a Bolens sleeve hitch plow behind it. Also, 12 inch.

What kind of Wheelhorse did you use to pull this plow .I ask because I have a plow set up just like it and always wondered what tractor this was built for because this is the only ones I have seen with that strang mount

My MM 108 is narrower then the rest. I have taken the pin out and removed the standard hitch. The 112, 114 are about an 1" wider because they use the 2 piece trans axle case, the 108 uses a 3 piece gear case.

I use the plow on my 1276. It came with my Electro 12. But, it will fit just about any Wheelhorse.
