They (on those I have seen) were on the left front corner of the primary frame. The bracket was 3/4" thick plate bent into a U shape with the wheel mounted on an adjustable J shaped bar that could be slid in from the bottom.
Ours was set to depth, but not used as a primary support on the land. It was used as a visual cue as to the current depth, as was the cylinder lmit collar. With a handle operated psudo draft control, (D handle with slots in a bracket with a flat spring) the real attack angle was not easily delt with. Our 3-14s on a 350U and neighbors 350UD were used on fields which were radically variable from edge to edge/end to end. Depth adjustment was nearly a continuous project. (due to poor draft control)
A 400 (early) with an angle of implement control was way more adjustable and had no draft control named as such. Later 400s and 450s did and they were not much help, as they were the D handled style, and sensed very little, and made little difference whether in full up or full down position on the lever.
Using it to keep it from tipping over when the plow was removed from the tractor was the wheels main function for us. Jim

Here is a picture of my 311 fast-hitch plow mounted on my 450-D. When my dad bought it, we used it on a 400. It works much better on the 400s with the extra cylinder to tilt the plow. I normally plowed with the fast-hitch some what floating and the gauge wheel controling the depth. But at times you still had to adjust the plow with the fast-hitch hydraulic controls when going through ditches etc. to keep the plow from pulling out of the ground. Al
