I have been looking over my new to me Sears/Brinly 3 point plow for several week while waiting for some parts to arrive.  Here is what it looked like when I got it.

20171225_132756.jpg 20171225_132818.jpg 20171225_132837.jpg

The first thing I did was order new Cat 0 pins.  The PO had drilled out the holes in the plow for Cat 1 pins so I order a Cat 1 to Cat 0 pins from Ebay.  They arrived the other day so now I could spend some time  fixing what was wrong with the plow.  This plow was used be a big tractor then a GT so it has sustained from damage.  Here are the old and new pins.

The lower pin hole for the mast assembly was bent so I used my 20 ton press and bent it back into shape.

I also notice the PO has cut the one side of the top link mast off and then welded it back on.  Not sure why?  Maybe it was bent as well and the only way they could fix it was cut it off and weld it back somewhat strait.

Next up was to remove the coulter blade to straiten the rod holding the coulter.  I also greased the coulter and added some washer and a new carter pin to hold coulter to the fork.  I also grease the gauge wheel as well.  They both were dry as a bone.

I got it all but back together and I had to put it on my Cub 1811.

I'm anxious to try her out this spring when the ground thaws out!  I've never plowed before so I've got the owner manual for the plow and I'll read it more thoroughly when I need to get it set up.

 

One question that I do have for those people that own this same type of plow. 

Does this piece of rod that is welded in-between the beam belong there????

My Brinley plow has the same rod weld in the same spot

Mine has a different gauge wheel but other than that they look the same

Wonder if the welded top link was repaired cause the Cat 1 tractor broke it off when it got caught on something.

These plows don't look heavy enough for those tractors

If you want to make a new piece for that mast, I made a drawing of the parts.

Take a close look at the shoe (frog).  Mine was also pulled behind a big tractor and the shoe was bent.  It took a lot of work with a torch and big hammer to get it back to a useable shape.

 

Pay close attention to the adjustment instructions and take wrenches you need to make the adjustments in the field.  First time out mine fought me like mad.  I made some adjustments at home and 2nd time out, after some minor field adjustments, it was like a hot knife through butter.

 

Some of my problems though were due to the goofy nature of the Speedex 3 point.  I think with your hitch it'll be easier to get right the first time.

I have a Sears 3-point here that is bent real bad in the 'frog' from use behind a Cat-1 tractor. Going to try to bend it back one of these days. May have to buy a new one.

If I was a better welder I would make this 3 pt for one of my garden plows!

May have to have someone else make it for me.

thanks Kenny!

The rod on mine still had some mig wire sticking out from it and the welds didn't look so good.  I thought maybe the PO had cut it from the cuilter shaft and used it to add some strength to the beam.

That's what I thought as well.

Thanks!

I added that to my tractor file on my computer!  Might need that in the future.

Thanks for the suggestion!

When I looked it over last night I didn't notice that is was bent but being pulled by a larger tractor anything can happen!
