Don't see the post quick, but I can describe it.
In this pic, there are gussets in the corners and if his had them, it probably would've been OK, but the red line I'd where I added a piece of angle iron to keep it from twisting. His was decent steel, but at 3/8" thick, it was just a little thin for the abuse the tractor could dish out. Yours is more powerful, so I expect the potential for damage to be greater. Just a thought.

I was actually thinking about the same thing. I have plenty of angle iron, and my dad has more of the bracket steel.

 

I found online where Brinly one bottom plows are about 68 lbs, is this about right?

Yeah, probably. I think his bent when he had the plow up and went over a bump. Lots of leverage back there.
It could've been during plowing too, idk.

Hopefully my first attempt at plowing next spring won't end up with parts of a JD 314 scattered all over the yard :D

sleeve hitch.jpg

 

Heres a picture of the home made hitch on my 314. It's crude but made of heavy steel. The picture was taken when I bought the tractor. I used this with a Brinly Box Blade with extra weight on it and never had any problems with bending. I think most of the hitch is made from 3/8 and 1/2" steel.

That first plow is for a Sears 3-point. Probably both brinly made. Good score!
