My question concerns the DB moldboard plow.
From reading the manual I know that the coulter position of the plow is fixed at the factory and cannot be changed. Supposedly it is set for optimal performance on this type of plow.
When I look at the coulter position on my plow, the position doesn't seem right.

Okay, I added these photos so that everyone would have a better picture of what I asked previously....
If you notice on the photos the coulter is running right above the shear but to, (what I think is the wrong side of the point). Since the coulter is supposed to clean the "brush" and also cut the furrow wall it seems to me that it should be to the left side of the plow point, (if viewing from the back of the plow).
What I think might have happened is that someone tore this plow down and reassembled it incorrectly with the coulter on the wrong side of the beam. I've done a little bit of measuring and if the coulter was mounted on the other side of the beam it would be riding right alongside of the plow point like I think it's supposed to.
The "head on" photos are the show the positioning of the coulter in relation to the point.
The side photo is to show what side the coulter is currently mounted on.
Please let me know if this setup is incorrect.
If so it should be an easy and quick fix to swap sides.
Also if you'll notice on the "side" photo there is a little square spacer on the rearward bolt. Is this spacer supposed to be on the back bolt or the front? I realize that it's supposed to hold the coulter at a little bit of an angle. I just want to make sure that it's positioned correctly.
Thanks for your help.
