If you post a pic of the unit, your tractor, etc... I think we can help get you set up.
I assume your PK has a lift?

this is the time honor'd way of measuring a plow bottom. From the outside of the landside to the end of the rear share point. Some plows never came with a rolling coulter, and would be hard to figure using that as a basis.

The plow you have is from a Simplicity Walk Behind as evidenced by the direction of the adjustment handle and the type of hitch you have as well. The color is a clue too.
I think this is the one you should be looking for.
If you need to modify this one to work, you should be able to build a similar type hitch and replace the existing clevis so the plow fits the drawbar better.

The Coulter has is removable why is that?
Coulters come in several different styles, which include a fixed position, an adjustable position, and a swivel, which can be fixed or adjustable. There are also jointers, which is basically a blade instead of a disc, and can come down from the top or up from the bottom. Some times a plow will have both a coulter and a jointer. The purpose of all these is to cut off a slight amount of soil, to give you a clean furrow wall, and help the moldboard open the furrow up. Most times its best to keep it on, but since these plows were really made to work in the garden, large amounts of trash, ie corn stalks can build up and overwhelm it. What you see as a removable object is really an adjustable one. If it plugs up you can simply raise it to a high position. There is a lot of trail & error to getting a plow set up right for a tractor. Unless your lifting hitch has some kind of turnbuckle in it, you really cant set the plow properly and sometimes just have to work with what you have. Most plows with out this advantage, have a twisted draw bar that will lean the bottom over to make up for the lack of adjustment elsewhere. The Simplicity plow you have could be made to work, as its hitch is basically just a sleeve type, you would just have to get off and adjust the bottom to get the plow to enter the ground and control the depth of cut.

Thank you so much for all help. For now I will try the plow I have and keep an eye out for a power king one to fit my draw bar.
