but it didn't work so well. It didn't help that the ground was to wet and soft.

I'll start with when I got the plow. It came with the 12A Power Hos I got from Indiana last spring. When I was out there I talked with Aaron about it, he didn't think It was for a 12A. It didn't look like it at the time but after I removed some extra iron off it and found a bracket in the boxes of parts it had to be for one (12A has a unique hitch system).

The problem is the plow twists when in the ground. I know what to do to fix it but need some pics of how its suppose to be.

Someone at some point cut off some flat iron brackets. In the #2 pic it looks like its suppose to come up and back (like a hook) to keep the plow from twisting like it does. The #1 pic looks to me like it should run straight up to be a stop of some kind.

I'm probably not going to use it as the tractor goes way to fast for plowing. I just would like to know how the brackets were when it was new, so I can paint it up and show it. A manual or some pics would be appreciated.

If you put 4" under the left wheels, i think the plow should be about straight up and down. I wish I could help, out of my depth on a walk behind.

That's kinda what I was thinking. But there needs to be something to hold it tilted.

I've done many searches on the web but nothing ever seems to come up about it. I'm sure there's a guy out there that has a hand full of them. I just need to find him.

Not sure if this helps any, but the hitch is pictured in the parts list for the cultivator.

You wouldn't happen to have a parts list in your old paper work would you? The hitch for the cultivator is a little different than the plow. I'll try and get some pics of the two side by side later.
