I hope that plow worked good for you. I had the same thing happen a couple months ago when my choke cable found it's way to the positive post on the battery.
Brian, it worked great. I've got some video uploading to youtube, probably won't be able to post it here till tomorrow. Post #11, the top middle picture is your plow in the dirt. Minimal adjustment to get it dialed in. The biggest problem was the conditions we were plowing under.
The area we had to plow in was somewhat like a bowl, so as you finished up on one end, you were also trying to plow uphill. The field hadn't been tilled in several years and so it was heavy sod and heavy red clay. I didn't really have any trouble plowing, but my younger son who was using this tractor was about 100 lbs lighter than me. Plus, he really needed a more delicate touch on the speed control handle. More than once, he'd just shove the speed control forward when he should have just nudged it a bit, and suddenly the uphill wheel would start spinning. I had to adjust the plow so it took the smallest bite possible, so I'm glad I took your advice and already had the yoke switched around so that it was easy to do. I'm hoping David may have grabbed some shots of me hanging off the footboards on the uphill side to add weight until I could get things dialed in and get #2 son trained to follow the furrow and go easy on the controls.
The geared Massey did a great job until the choke cable started to melt down. My oldest drove it around the field a number of times. That plow was set to the middle hole of the yoke, but turned in the opposite direction, so it was taking a slightly larger than standard bite. But it had the ATV tires on it, and for the most part, they seemed to do a really good job of moving the tractor forward.
This was the first plow day for both boys. Neither one had ever really done much if any plowing before. By the end of the day, both boys were exceedingly glad they had come, and I think they will look forward to the next one.
I'd like to thank Vince-O for letting me drive his Cub. Nice machine, but half the time I was totally confused about where all the controls were and how they operated LOL! I'll move up to a larger tractor some day, but it will be a Massey!! Great meeting everyone to, had some nice conversations with several people.
