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

 Is there any chance you could post some more detailed pictures of your gauge wheel setup?

 

Thanks, Jim

I will, but it's at the other location, and is suppose to rain for the next few days. The pictures I posted are two years old.

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.

They are 10.5's off an allis chalmers i picked up. they are big but the other option is chains on the stock tires

I found the lift rod out in the pile of extra parts that came with the Bolens collection I bought. Just need to look at parts view to see what it looks like.

After a little straightening it works fine!

Here is the coulter wheel adjusted.

And I have the plow on the center hole, I will move it to the right one giving it a little more offset.

Those big tires are to be used on my Ford 125 closed sided when I plow with that one. I wanted to try  the Bolens once and due to it being a couple hundred pounds lighter, it was the choice for this trip as I have another tractor that I am bringing and one to return home on the trailer.

Not great pictures, any way, when you adjust your depth with the crank the wheel moves too. Hope this helps, if you want more , let me know.

Noel.
