Is there a way to measure and set the right rear tire before actually plowing with the tractor? The tractor is a Farmall C and the plow is a Massey Harris 2-14. I know I will need to make a few adjustments to get it to plow correctly, but I would like to move the tire to the correct position before I head out to the field. The rear tires are new and I have two weights on the right rear and one on the left. Will that be enough? I want to enjoy this as much as possible.
Thank you
SDE

To get you in the ballpark, move the right wheel about two inches from the axel housing...the left, about 14 inches from the axel housing..Cmore

Either add a second weight to your tractor's land wheel, or transfer the second weight from the furrow wheel to the land wheel. You will not be happy the way it is now.

I added another weight to the left side. I have a couple more , but they are not the IH weights. I moved the right wheel in an inch, to get the 25.5 spacing, which is about 2 inches from the housing. Thank you

25 1/2" from center line of tractor to the inside of the right rear wheel.
"adjust the rear wheels of the tractor so they are equidistant from the center line of tractor.The distance between the center line of the tractor and the inside of the tire is determined by the size of the plow:
23 1/2 " for 12 inch plows,
25 1/2" for 14 inch plows,
and 27 1/2" for 16 inch plows. When plowing at depths greater than 8 inches add 1 inch to the dimensions above."
When in the ground, the plow should be level front to back and right to left.

Thank you for the manual. I copied it and will try to read the rest of it later. If the little C can not do the job, I will go back to using the 400. When I get the F-20 running, in a few years, I will try her at it also.
Thank you
Steve

I run my SC with both tires all the way in with just a slight gap between the hub and axle housing. 12.4"X36" tires with rims dished out. This is with a C20 2-14" fast hitch plow.

My SC has a fresh motor and in my heavy clays it will barely break new ground. Once the ground has been turned it's 1st gear WOT with 3 weights on each side.

We always set the left rear over about 5" from the end of the axel housing and I do not remember the exact measurement. Set just right you could look down the center of the hood over the radiator cap down the last pass along the tire track and keep the tractor in line. It only worked with the C/SC/200 series tractors and 14" plows. The right side tire was about 2" off the end of the axel housing. Those of you who work in heavy clay or loam soil might think it strange but we pulled 2 14"s in third gear with both a C and a 200. Our soil tended to be a soft Loamy-sand or Sandy-loam.

The C will have a bear by the lead with 2-14s. In very easy loam OK, but in any tough soil it will not do well. With that said, The right tire should be aligned with the right edge of the right share. Pull the plow (up) forward for 15 feet or so very straight ahead. then you can use a string or long straight edge to measure where the right edge of the first share is in relationship to the inside edge of the sidewall of the right tire. This will be a reasonable starting point. Jim

The left tire will slip more than the right, especially in sod.
