Had someone I didn't even know call last nite and then deliver me this plow. Looks to be one for a 1920-30's Red-E tractor. I used to have a 28 model, wished I would have kept it now.

haven't really had the time to make any plan for it. been pretty deep into building PJ attachments and never went any further than figuring out what it was off of. Do you have a plan for it? might trade it for a Pj cultivator.

I finally got around to mounting the plow on the tractor.

One thing that I found that does not seem right is when the plow is raised the coulter will swing to where it hits the sleeve hitch. The coulter needs to swing some when the offset is adjusted. My question should I drill & tap this for a set screw to lock it in placed. Looking at pictures of other plows the coulter it looks that the coulter has no side to side movement.

There should be a roll pin that restricts the movement.

With the way the mounting for this coulter I think a set screw mi9ght be better.

I would allow for some movement, but restrict it.
Making the mount solid can have bad circumstances if you hit something. I know I had hit some rocks hard with the Sears coulter and am waiting for it to bend. The big ones all have some limited movement. So do most of the GT sized ones.
