I"ve a 1944 "A" Farmall that I"ve used for years with the planter and cultivator, it came with the middle buster and breaking plow also but I"ve never used either. I can"t figure out exactly how to hook up the breaking plow. I can see how to hook it to the front underneath, but am at a loss at how the lift picks it up as having never seen one mounted. Anyone have any pics of either the buster or breaking plow hooked up?

Forget all the stuff about Cubs, Super As and reversed drawbars. The A plow is mounted as described by Gene Bender and seen in El Toro's picture.

I just saw the picture posted on another thread of his A plow. That is a totally different animal. Nothing like a Super A.

I'm familiar with the Plow for the Super A. The A should be similar, except it would have a manual lift rather than hydraulic. You will reverse the drawbar and attach it to the front mounting bolts on the final drives. Then the plow will bolt to the drawbar. I'm assuming it is a right hand plow. You will bolt the plow beam attachment which has the big springs to the right most holes in the drawbar. The tractor wheels will need to be turn in to the next to narrowest setting which is probably how you have them if you have been using the cultivator. Once the plow is attached to the drawbar, you will then use a chain from the plow to the rear cultivator rockshaft to lift the plow. If you have all the attachements for the plow, there is a draft control rod that will go to the front lift to adjust the angle of the plow front to rear. When using this, you will take the lock bolts out of the drawbar mounting brackets which will allow the drawbar to move up and down on the pivots. The draft control rod which is attached to support the drawbar is adjusted to get the plow to plow at the depth you desire. To get started, the front of the plow beam is lowered to make the plow dig in. After you get started and the tractor tire is running in the furrow, you can raise the front of the plow beam to adjust the depth. In the event you don't have the draft control parts (which are frequently missing), you can still use the plow by locking the drawbar in position with the lock bolts. To get started, the drawbar will need to be in the lowest position, otherwise the plow will not dig in. I used one of these plows on a super A for years without the draft control and usually just left the drawbar in the lowest position. Good luck.

The plow for the A doesent hook to the drawbar it fastens to a "y" shaped bracket going to the front steering sector. The depth is controlled by a lever mounted on the bell housing. The lever for lifting the plow is spring loaded and bolts to the drivers platform next to the fender.Does that answer your question if not i can answer what ever you would want to know.

I don't have anything for the A, but the below link shows the mounting of the same type plow on a Cub. I believe the mounting is very similar.

Mine looks like it twice as long as that one on the cub. It has a completely different set up on the beam also for leveling it side to side. I'll have to figure out how to set the point to dig right. I'll get some pics tomorrow and post them.

Cub beam is short and hooks to the reversed drawbar.

Here's the Cub plow and disk harrow. The plow for the A is longer and is quite heavy. The Cub plow isn't light. The plow for the A isn't hard to lift with those springs. Hal

Here's my Farmall A with the moldboard plow. Hal
PS: If I remember right I think that drawbar had to be reversed. There are pics in the archives on this forum that show the A with the mounted plow from the rear. I have them stored somewhere on My Documents.

Probably mounted similarly, but what he calls a "breaking plow" is probably a disk plow likely with 2 disks, very common in S Texas and other southern states where moldboards were not used.

OK, I have never heard a moldboard called a breaking plow, only disk plows-but I don't know the terminolgy from all the US or elsewhere either.

Do you have the levers on your tractor for tilting the plow point and for lowering and raising the plow? I had never installed that plow on a Farmall A . We never had an A. They used pull type plows. I asked the local IH dealer back then in 1976 if they knew how. None of them had ever installed that plow. My plow had all the brackets on it and it wasn't that hard to mount. Hal

I have the levers for the cultivators and planter, I'll have to get it all out again. It does have the leveling (side to side) leaver. Looks like it hooks to the rear or the tractor where the drag out plows hook up. I'll get it out tomorrow and get some pics posted.

Those levers are different and the levelling is done with a crank on the rockshaft assy. I have that assy if you need it.319-430-3907
