I mounted my ags today, the sleeve hitch and adjusted the plow . I made it flat with  the ground while on 4" blocks. So far all is good? I need to make a rod to lift the hitch, didn't come with one and the tiller one is too short.

 Big question is,, Is the coulter wheel too far back ? or is that right? I think its too low but thats  adjustable . I looked at Kenny's pics of his brinley on Alice and it seems to be a little more forward, or is that just because it's higher? 

 

So make the lifting rod, put on the rear weights, change the oil, and put a seat cover on and I'm ready. Oh yeah, polish the rust off the plow a little.

Looks like a nice set up.
I would love to find a mouldboard plough for my sleeve hitch. We keep making the garden bigger and it is a lot of work to till the sod in first, specially as our soil is very thick rich earth with a little clay mix.

The counter looks about right to me.  2" to 3" deep is about what they usually run, to cut the trash on to to leave a clean edge furrow, hopefully.  If anything it need to be forward about 3" so the center of the coulter lines up with the point of the plow.   Would need a dog leg in the shank to get that done.

Good luck finding one in Canada, it took me a year to get one and it came from Columbus Ohio, found it on CL for 50$ when I was down there for work, but 110$ to get it back home!

Those ag tires look huge compared to the 23x8.5x12 Deestones I have on my 1054. Do you have liquid ballast in them?

 

As for finding a sleeve hitch plow up here, I did manage to find one local to me last year, I paid pretty close to your total cost Chubien. I did see a few others on Kijiji last year as well, but 2 or 3 hours away.

Coulter looks about right. Here's a picture of mine. It seem to work ok.

I hear their new plows are junk.

I would travel that far for a good Brinley for a decent price. Road trips are a good time! Specially when you can stay off the highways and take the country roads.

Looking at your first photo, it looks like your only getting about 4" or 5" of new cut with the plow.  Rest is following the rear wheel in the furrow.  I had the same problem behind my 1050 and later the G12.  Plow was shifted to the left in the far left hole. Haven't had it on since last fall to work on it.  The way these seem to set up it takes a 12" plow to get 6" of cut.  How do you plow guys overcome this situation short of a 4" spacer on the right rear wheel?

I don't have one of those tractors, but it looks narrow between the tires. Smaller tire help, 6 x 12. Maybe an 8" plow too

Attaching it with the right most hole will set the plow furthest to the left, and I assume that that is how you mean you had it set up. You can also unbolt that part of the hitch and rotate it 180 degrees and it will give you a different offset. I don't know if you have tried that yet or not.
