If I was guessing I would say it has been run with worn out
shares and the moldboard suffered because of it. As far as
disc plows, I love my Ferguson disc plow and if you can find
one I would recommend it. Just going by what I"ve heard the
Dearborn disc plow isn"t as good of a plow as the Ferguson or
the Massey versions, there are a couple of companies making
brand new disc plows right now and they are exact clones of
the Massey versions, so that has to say something about their
design.I would check the bearings on the discs to see if the
bearings are loose if they are it has probably been run that
way. If the spring on the tail wheel is missing you won"t be able
to keep it in the furrow as well as if the disc in the middle of the
tail wheel is worn you won"t be able to keep it in the furrow. If
the scrapers are missing it won"t be much count either. Instead
of a disc plow, have you given any thought to a Ferguson or
Dearborn 9 shank spring tine tiller? I have 2 and honestly I
probably use them more than any other plow I have. I usually
plow and disc in the fall but in the spring it"s the 9 shank tiller
from then on. Just throwing another idea out there for you and
those plows are easy to find. Ferguson called it a tiller and
Ford called it a field cultivator, but it is the same plow.

Jason, I too like my old ferguson mf64 disc plow, it does a great job.
always wanted one of those ferguson 9 shank tillers, but never found one around my area of west KY.
I did find an old AC field cultivator and cut the AC snap couple hitch off, welded on a 3 pt hitch. It works good, heavy for a little TO-35.
