I've started repainting this cultivator.  While I was disassembling it, I noticed this piece, which appears to serve no useful purpose.  It doesn't move & isn't connected to anything else.  That said, it looks original.  Any idea what it is for?

It looks like a way to adjust depth. Are there any trailing wheels on it? Maybe it should have one there?

Furrow plow, with the 3 holes it is adjustible.

 

Depth wheels were usually on the back due to the hitch, if horse drawn depth wheel on the hitch.

at one time a lot of walk-behind tractors had a handle or even some linkage that would let you steer the vator unit, separately from the tractor handles. Don't know if this applies to yours but it could have had something similar.

Most units don't have down pressure, you can mount a seat on that spot and park a FAT CAT on it.

Is there any kind of an implement lift on the handle bars that would connect to that with a rod to control depth? You'de have to have some way to transport it.

Thought about that, i know what you are thinking, i think for Simples's or Speedex's early walkers had a single handle, that was a differnt set up for different vator'.

Simplicity did that with the early walkers, the bracket was on top of the frame, it was not like new canada's, see how it bends inline with the vator beam, my Planet Jr. and simple walker VA (sold it) has that also for the furrower plow.

If you look at the picturs of Will's Simplicity in post 20 here http://gardentractor...e-2#entry428692 you can see a trailing wheel at the back. You must be missing that?

The one on the left is for Troy Bilt, the one on the right is more like it.

Im thinking that too, it could even be the hard rubber type, have seen those.
