Thank You for the info, I always wondered how to set up a garden tractor plow. Never thought to use a block of wood.

That's my next project, My neighbor gave me a near bran new Brinly Plow he had sitting in his garage for near 10 yrs never been used, never had one or messed with one or talked with any one about one, so I set it behind my shed till I could get to it. Then telling my Uncle about it he told me MISTAKE put it inside the shed you don't want rust on it at all. So when I got home I went straight back there dug it out of 18" of snow and put it in the shed, and yes the rust had started :-( had I known sooner.

Your remarks made me smile. Our Farm King rested under a tarp, the deck sat up against a tree, the blade sat on some blocks but the plow was carefully cleaned, heavily greased and put in the barn every year. My husband grew up on a farm. Everything is in the barn now.

Thanks for the welcome. . . appreciated. My stories on the Farm King all center on the one time a year he used it. . . to plow the garden. The snow blade lost out to a skid steer front loader (no set up time) and then that lost out to our heading south when snow arrived. . . more fun.
