Oh yes, I have the plow set to the very far right, the way it needs to go. It still doesn't track straight, but I'll take the bolts out anyway and try.

Also, I was watching the 8th annual PA plow day video and noticed this at  27:18. This guy has a bolens gear drive and plow like mine, and his is straight up and down as it should be. The hitch is also slanted like mine is, but the opposite way.

 

Yes that is my dad and his Bolens. Looking at your pictures it is hard to tell but it looks like you have your sleeve hitch mounted crooked. The front of the sleeve hitch has two vertical holes. Looks like you have the right side mounted on the bottom hole and the left side mounted on the top hole which is making it lean to the left. They should be in the same hole where the hitch is level. 

 

Do you have another plow to compare the angle of yours to? I see that it was re-welded.

I was wondering who that was, love your Bush hog by the way!

Yes, the sleeve hitch is tilted, if it wasn't, the plow would be turned even more to the right. I'll go out and get pics of it with the hitch normal and closeups of the hitch.

A shot straight on from the back would be great too. I think your plow is tweaked too hard from where it was welded again.

Ok, I just came back in and I'm gonna put some work pants on (going to a movie a little later). I'm going to try and straighten the plow out and see what happens.

Ok, so I got some pics of the plow before and after adjusting the sleeve hitch. I also tried that other hole and it's kinda ridiculous, as you can't actually lift the plow. So I moved it back and plowed the manure pile again and it turned over pretty good.

I'm going to have to look at one of mine, but I think you're right, that's tipped the wrong way.
It will tip more when in the furrow, not straight up and down.

I will be up there again on Friday.

I say its leaning the wrong way. When the left side of the tractor is up on the unplowed ground, the share will be leaning even more towards the wrong way. The share needs to sit flat (left/right) when the tractors right side is in the furrow. With it angled the way it is there is no way for this to happen.  With a 3pth, the adjustments in the lift arms can be used to make this adjustment. I have no idea how its done on a sleeve hitch. Maybe someone with a sleeve hitch plow can take a pic.

The sleeve hitch has 4 mounting holes, and you use 2 of them. That is the only adjustment for the sleeve hitch. Someone welded the plow hitch at the wrong angle for some reason at some point.

Yes for sure it's leaning the wrong way.

Someone must of welded the hitch part wrong, should of been leaning the other way, that way when the tractor is in the furrow the plow is straight up and down, not leaning ether way.

Any chance the hitch is mounted upside down?

Nope, it's tilted the same no matter which way I put it.

I think I can weld it or have it welded. What is the angle it should be tipped?
