This is the best picture I have of the depth wheel. I will take some today at different angles.

Not much if any, except for people plowing there gardens(what ours will be primarily used for). We still have our JD 1350-1450, but it has sat for many years. Do you see any in your area?

The only plowing here is once every 5-6 years guys plow the back slopes of the terraces , but other than that an occasional farmer will plow ground coming out of the CRP , our plow looks as rusty as yours.

In your line of work do you ever see or get to work on anything older?  

Here's a few pictures of one of the older ones I service (It's in the shop right now).

Actually, that isn't a depth gauge wheel.  It's called a rolling landslide.  Not all plows have them though.

I think they were more common on the fully mounted plows . Right?

Yes, I believe so.  I know our old 3 bottom Massey had one.  The old Dearborn 2 bottoms had them too.
