They are both 10's and the cutler is set the same on both of them. Its the angle of the pictures that makes the cutlers look different I'm sure.its hard to represent and see the differences in pictures. The main beams ? appear different.the angle of the top link mounts are different and one main beam isn't angled downward as much at the hitch. As already suggested it looks like the one on the right has been tweaked hard somehow. Here are a few more pictures.

I can after work.
"Tweaking" is one of the sad after effects of putting these behind bigger tractors.

Pics flipped :thumbs:

 

 

As mentioned above by MH81 looks like someone tried using it for a non OEM application and screwed it up

I don't use plows so I'm not sure what you call the disc on a plow "colter"?, but the one on the right looks farther out then the one on the left.

Many thanks Bolens.

Seems that there is a fairly common misconception that these are cat.0. I would think it would have taken a hard snare and a stout GT to tweak the plow like this one is. These are stout built plows. It appears the only part bent,tweaked or twisted s the main beam which I find interesting. You would think you would see other signs from the damage. I'm curious how it will pull now.

Mold board on the left plow is narrower at the bottom than the one on the right, where they connect to the point/share. They would both be different to pull through the ground and would lay a different sod/furrow. The point/share look to be the same. Just my opinion, Noel.

Sometimes the top link arm is reversible with a different angle.
If not enough, the top link may be enough to compensate. Please let us know if you can save the patient Doctor

You guys have too much time on your hands! LOL

In my simplistic world, if it plows fine, then it's good.

I think you might be right they might of done that to give some more adjustment.

The one has a different top hitch point where your adjustment bar links to it. The one has a 90 degree side and an angled side, while the other has 2 angled sides. I'm not sure because I've never tried on my plows but I think they are adjustable a bit to help give you more adjustment with the top link. If you pull it mostly forward you will be able to run the plow straighter and possible set depth better? If it is back farther you will run deeper for sure. Definitly different top link brackets though. Let us know which plows better for you.

The adjustable top link on many cat 0 tractors were different lengths and not adjustable enough and if the angle was to low it would allow the link to drop below the upward angle necessary to keep to plow at 180 to the ground when soil was engaged which could even break the top link off , so you will often find these implements jimmy rigged to accommodate these differences . Angles different , holes drilled to set them higher or lower . The distances between the pins on these was 19 inches instead of the standard cat 0 and this also created problems with lift arms and upper top links matching up correctly . I think these implements were actually manufactured by Brinley for Sears , I could be wrong .
