I think u made out alright on that deal. It looks like u are to far to the right looking at tractor from the back. The back edge of the flat bottom cutting edge on the moldboard should be just inside the tire track. It's hard to tell from this angle .your right wheel will be in the rut so any blade behind the wheel is wasted. I hope that makes sence , typing is not my strong point . Tom

Hard to find a plow with the coulter wheel and the dept wheel too , and three point hitch to top it all off. That plow will last a life time. Good luck with it. Tom

Thanks my typing and pictures skills are not the best either by any means.

i snagged these pics real quick i've never set up a plow or really plowed at all so i'm learning now before PA plow day.

I've read enough to know when i set the level i should uses 2 6" block on the left side to simulate the tractor being in the furrow. When i do this how to i want to adjust the top link is there any correct adjustment i should be looking for.

I always set mine up so with the right tire in the row I plowed before and the plow digs and turns over the dirt well but not so far left it is over working the tractor

I've never set from a block but you want the plow level front to back and side to side while the tractors blocked up. You probably will have to make field adjustments according to soil conditions, traction and who ever is in front of you . A smaller tractor may plow shallower than the last one that was very deep. I'm sure anyone there would love to help you get going. At one time every one there had never plowed before. I grew up on a farm and my first time I was 40 . Tom

Thanks everyone i see we don't happen to have this manual on the site but i did happen to find a copy over at another site that i used to be apart of. The correct instruction really made it easier to under stand how to set plowing width and how to adjust the back of the plow.
