Have you put the left side of the tractor up on blocks and set the plow up that way? If the yoke it wrong, the plow will not sit flat to ground. Take a look at what I did here.

If I am correct, take the hitch off the front of the plow and turn it 180° (white piece). Mine was the same way and I could not get it to plow right. Did the turn over and it got real nice after that. Some tractors will work with that as it is, but my Ford would not!

There is something like a 15* "twist" on this piece so that when the right wheels are in the furrow, the plow sits level (side to side).

No adjustment on a sleeve hitch , which mine has, for levelling the plow level, to do your crown, then releveling, when the wheels are in the furrow. A 3 point hitch has that adjustment.

Noel, your front hitch is upside down as Kenny said.I had to loose the Colter as well because it didn't want to penetrate the soil.
I too have a sleeve hitch with the same plow.
One issue that causes the roll to fall back is too thin a slice. Flipping the hitch will give you a few more inches of bite.
As far as getting a crown? Going to be a real challenge with a sleeve hitch but may be do-able? Not sure as I have never tried it.
I might have to give it a try as the fields done correctly are so awsome looking!

Noel, how are you making out with plow and that double crown? Whoo doggy is that difficult to do with a light tractor in sod!
I don't have the gage wheel like you do (wished I did) I could not roll the first light pass over unless the plow was full depth or it would steer me where ever it wanted.. need some serious weight up front.. and in the rear as the sod would slide you sideways if it offered up any resistance but this was only when trying to get that double crown. If I just started at one side and worked my way to the other it went fine?

So, did a split crown, not sure if that's the correct name, I'm sure someone can correct me, and just a crown. First time I ever did a split crown. The plow is tilted so only the rear plow is used on the first furrow, then set back to crown setting. So I didn't do very well. But you maybe able to see what I did. Last picture is a crown, second last picture is a split crown.
Split crown, all sod is cut under the crown.
Crown, sod is flipped on top of uncut sod.

About 5". They are 10"
Plows.
But, depending on the hills on the land, which are small, it will move the tractor up or down on the front , which will affect the depth of the plow

Those look like the 2-14's we had. Must be the pic, but they look bigger than 10’s. What model are they?
Also, here is a page that has the Fergy setup. From '47
