First off your gonna want to get a rolling land side on it. The regular land side alone isnt long enough to hold the plow staight. Any plow that didnt have a rolling land side from the factory was in extreamly light soil. Second when you get it in the field get into the furrow, trip it and drive 15 feet or so. When it is all the way in the ground stop and loosen all the tungue adjustments including the drawbar on the tractor if it swings. If the tredwidth on the tractor is set right when you take off again the plow should find its own center and track straight. When this happens stop again and tighten everything back up and you should be good. That is how Oliver recomended you set a trailer plow up and we have had good luck setting our 100s this way. The only thing you might have to do is drop the tougue support down to force the back bottom in, sometimes in heavy ground it wants to pull out. If it doesnt work the tredwidth on the tractor is set to wide and you cant get over far enough, or something on the plow is slightly sprung.

Oliverkid, I just found out that my plow originally had heels on the landsides. Might that be why there's no tail wheel & can I get along without the wheel, provided I use the heels? I'm adding new landsides, too. The old ones don't have enough meat left on them to add anything without breakage. I'm not trying to get around using a rolling landside, I just don't want these repairs & plowing to go on forever. Frozen ground is only around the corner & I will be exeptionally lucky if it dries out enough before then to finish plowing. We'll see how much rain we get around here, tonight.

I'm not sure where I'm going to find a rolling landside on short notice, but I'll have to post a wanted. The stationary landsides aren't going to hold out for much longer. The one is so thin on the trailing end, the metal has begun to curl over. May have to get a pair of those, too. Once the ground dries, I'll go over the plow, as per your instructions.

Let me know how it goes. If you get all the new parts on it you should be all set.
