JD,Those Olivers you left the 2nd bottom alone and adjusred the others to it to get the correct 'width'.The frame is drilled to accomdate that.Tractor wheels are moved to the correct width.What Allen did was to redrill the holes in order to move the plow bottoms over to avoid moveing the tractor wheels.That 'long' Oliver frame makes it possible to reposition the bottoms.As to the 6 bottom????Lots of 5 and 6 bottoms are used here.There is even a 7 bottom here that is pulled by a newer Agco/Allis MFWD.The owner is talking about adding another bottom....

Well Steve that makes sense now. I see what Allen is doing.

On that set of plow that where around here. They where The same as a White 588 plow but fully mounted 6 bottoms. They had the dished rolling coulters on the top and bottom gangs. Plus they where auto reset as well. They where HEAVY. We took them and weighted them on a scale. They weight 8800 lbs. We did plow with them one time with another friend's JD 8770 4wd. It handled them as far as lifting them but it really needed an onland hitch to work correctly. It was a shame as these plows where BRAND new. They never plowed more than 5-6 acres of ground. I finally helped him find other plow frames with bad bottoms and used up the right hand stuff. The left hand coulters where the same as the rights with just the coulter bolted on flipped. We used the standards and made two plows auto reset. All of the left hand parts and the roll over frame we advertised and never sold any of it. We finally hauled all of it to the scrap yard. The moldboards, shins, and points where same as new. Sold them all for scrap. To maybe help you feel a little better this was in 1989. So it has been a long time ago.

Looking back I should have bought them and just cut them down to a set of 4 or 5 bottoms and used them. I would still like to have a set to maintain terraces.

Bingo!! Why didn't I say that? I "could" move my wheels out but it's a pain in the rear and I didn't wanna. :D

I guess I should comment on the 'torched off" place at the front of the frame. The previous owner had welded a frame to pull a packer. I ain't gonna pull a packer and it added about another 150 pounds to the plow. this thing is already pretty heavy. I'll grind it nice and pretty before I am done. You'll never know it was there.
