I have to state this, the reason your plow isn't lifting off the ground is that hitch piece bolts solid to the plow with 2 bolts. So once you have that piece rewelded to the correct angle of 10 degrees (as Alan stated) and bolted back on solidly, you should see the plow lift off the ground. Good luck.

As cheap as that part is from Brinly, I think I'd just buy one from them and be done with it.

 

That way you know that it will be correct.

Casey, The plow wasn't lifting off because I used that other bolt hole on the hitch. It lifts fine on the regular setting, it just doesn't track right, but that's on both settings. 

 

OB, I'll try my luck at having it rewelded, I've got a machinist 2 miles away as a last resort if Dad and I can't do it. I think we can though. If all else fails Brinly will get an order in :D

No problem. It looked as though you were only using one bolt (im guilty of doing that when im disassembling often)

Could you put few better pictures of the point on the plow. It looks worn out, but it's hard to see. Thanks, Noel.

Thanks Noel! So yours is just straight up and down, not angled?

No, his is angled too. You can see it if you look close.

You have to look at the underneath of the point. The point has to be tipped down so it will dig in, not tipped up. If its worn so it's tipped up, the plow will want to pull up out of the ground. To make it dig, you have to adjust the point tip down more, which then puts the landslide up at the back. The point is suppose to have, what is called , suck, under the point to keep the plow in the ground and not ride up out of the ground and then you can adjust the plow so the landslide is down in the back.   Could you show a picture of the underneath of the point.  Hope this helps.  Noel

Pictures of points. Not quite what picture I was looking for, but you get the idea. Noel.

Yep, I see what you mean. I'll have to get a pic when I go out again.

 

Ok, something really awesome just happened! At our county fair, a guy from our Tractor Club (Northland Oliver collector's Association   http://www.northlandoliver.com/) Told me he had a present for me. I had no clue what it was until he stopped by today. He saw my Gt at the fair and said he had something I would like, when he opened the tailgate of his pickup, I couldn't believe it! There he had a Brinly sleeve hitch plow in pieces!! So now I have 2 plows and, yep, the correct hitch piece!!! Immediately after he left I tore the old one off, put the new one in and plowed the manure pile. You could tell something was different, it's finally right! It still needs adjusting, and I'll do that probably when we dig all the potatoes and onions out of the garden. I'll get some pics of it when it's assembled!

That's great, can't wait for the pictures. Have fun with it. Use the other plow to make another type of attachment, just for fun, if you don't need it for some thing. Noel

Just a note about the point. I did not think mine was too bad, it was already old when I got it and I plowed with it for 3 years. I bout a new share last year and WOW what a difference. It really changed the way the plow worked. I would suggest buying a new one before next spring, it will make a huge difference.
