My questions are:

1. where can I get a reproduction or original operators manual for it besides Deere? any good websites?

2. Do you see any parts missing?

3. Do you think the shares are sufficient to plow 2-3 acres a year? If I get new shares, what am I looking for?

4. See any reason this plow wont work?

5. The tailwheel is a 4.80 - 12. Is it going to be tough to get one? Its flat. How does it come off?

6. Any way of telling what year it is? couldnt find a stamp anywhere yet

My questions are:

1. where can I get a reproduction or original operators manual for it besides Deere? any good websites?
I have good copies (had some made awhile back) for $15.

2. Do you see any parts missing?
The front coulter is what looks like an IHC or P&O; not an original JD (not that it matters from a standpoint of using the plow).


3. Do you think the shares are sufficient to plow 2-3 acres a year? If I get new shares, what am I looking for? You've got EP (Sod) plow bottoms. Those shares are going to be more difficult and more expensive to purchase compared to regular General Purpose (NGP) bottoms.

4. See any reason this plow wont work?
Aside from adjustment, I can't see why it wouldn't work. The shares don't look like they are perfect, but not completely worn out. 5. The tailwheel is a 4.80 - 12. Is it going to be tough to get one? Its flat. How does it come off?
The tail wheel would be a 4.00x12 implement tread tire. Carsyle makes one that is still American made.
6. Any way of telling what year it is? couldnt find a stamp anywhere yet There are not serial number stampings on these plow. Only a forensic exploration with a part catalog might yield a rang of years which it could have been built, but it's very doubtul you'll ever get it down to an exact year of production.

Sometimes it is hard to tell just how much "suck" is left in a used set of Shares..

I like to make new Landslides and leave them about 5" longer than the original on the Front and as long as is room on the rear bottom.. Helps make the slice turn over better and keeps the plow from crowding to the Left in damper ground..(keeps the furrow straighter)..

Do you have a part # for the shares I might need? I havent looked too much "down low" to see what shape my bolts are in. Will look closer when I get it in the shop this weekend.

No numbers, here..but your shares appear OK..but a picture can be deceiving..some shares were designed to have a greater amount of Suck than others... I have seen a JD 2 Bottom plow go from "going in good", to "won't go in at all" in just a couple of rounds.. Could be the conditions were getting Dryer maybe it was the shares. Some just change over to "High Speed Bottoms", so they can use "Throw-Away" shares..that are much cheaper and easier to find..

Yes. Usually, you would purchase a decent used downer plow, for parts..

The tire is the same as a small trailer tire, it will work for what you want to do. Do you have a 4" hand grinder? I use a flap disc wheel on mine to clean the rust off,(wear a dust mask!!!) get it as shiny as you can, and then grease or paint the shares and bottoms to keep them from rusting. Soak all moving parts excessively until they free up. Chris

Thats what appears to be on it right now is a "trailer tire" 4.80 - 12 an Armstrong? Is that tubeless? Does those four bolts just come out and to get off the hub?

I have some PB blaster I really like I am going to take after all the fastners once I get it in the shop in case I need to take something apart. planning on "pre scouring" the moldboards too before I try it this spring. trying to prevent a repeat of the dismal try from 3 years ago, hitch miss adjusted, didnt scour, tailwheel trying to jump out of the furrow to the unplowed side.....
