I am a little ahead of the gun here, because the after pictures wont be taken until i put it back together tomorrow. I bought this plow from a fellow member and identified it as an MTD plow. This plow was said to be used no more than one season... If that, and then set aside... Under a tree lol. I picked this up on Sunday, and have it painted already. Here is the before picture, before I bought it, be afraid lol.

I still cant believe how ugly this thing looked when I got it. Surprisingly, was able to reuse all the old hardware, except for washers, lockwashers, and cotterpins, those were rough. I did have to make a depth wheel setup for this, since it originally did not have one, but it turned out great. It is amazing what cool bracketry you can find on "car" receiver hitches at the scrap yard lol. You will see tomorrow afternoon how it all turned out.

If you had not mentioned plow it would take awhile to figure out what the pic was. It's rewarding rescuing something time has forgotten. Looking forward to your pics.

Plow depth gauge bracket going badly. So far I need an 18" diameter gauge wheel, or a new plan.

Looks good Casey. Are you going to try it with the turf tires?

A depth wheel really isn't necessary.

 

By adjusting the top link you can control how deep the plow goes.

Not going to try with turf tires, I have Tru Powers to mount and they will be in the same position.
I installed a Sears 16x5-8 gauge wheel. The 3/4" bushings were toast. So I grabbed the 5/8" bearings out of a junk garden cart wheel. Close enough fit to work. (Not a press in, but doesnt wiggle.)

Did you ever think it would clean up so well so quickly?

See what happens when you turn off the ADD for a day?

Seriously, nice job. Looking forward to seeing it turn dirt.

I kind of thought you might do a complete resto and got the beam smoothed.
Haha!

That would have taken at least 2 gallons of filler and three more weeks lol.
Black paint covers well and looks better than white. I used zero primer and just shot two good coats of Rustoleum Semi Gloss Black to it. Close enough.

I bought this plow this morning.  If you need more practice the wife would like to have it painted pink.   :D ​       Rick
