Leroy, I just read in detail your message. My 4B has the oil encased clutch and has factory rubber. My tires are both 600x16 cleat type implement, and I had them mounted backwards. Maybe I can compensate for the smaller land wheel with a little more/less tilt. I can't afford more tires, these about broke the bank. Thanks again, Ellis

They used the enclosed clutch until the end of production and steel wheels were standard/rubber opt. Here are some pics of mine on a '37 A so you can see where the levers were on this one. Things can vary so won't be exactly what you need. As you can see it plows very nice and never varied depth or went too deep. This one does have the large dia land wheel.
Also , this one is 100% original (accept for rope).

Ellis, sounds like you started spending your money too soon. You DO NOT want a cleat type tire on the furrow wheel, you only want a rim implement type with as smooth of a tread as you can get, any tread can and will make the tire pickup the dirt from the bottom of the furrow and if at all sticky will wrap up that tire in dirt. The land wheel you would want the trad backwards of on the tractor for traction but you should not need it, all we ever had on our plows but they were only 12" so would raise easier than a 16" plow were wore out car tires. The orignal 4B plow with the open clutch the land wheel was a 32" steel wheel while the furrow wheel was a 28" steel wheel and that is why when converting them to rubber they used that 20" wheel (Measured out to 32" and at that time the way they were marked is was 32 x 6 on the size) The 6:00 x 16" comes out at 28" diameter, and the factory rubber was 21". I think when they came out with the enclosed clutch and rubber they did go to the 16" wheel and made the axle 2" longer to acount for the change in tire size. I think I have the parts book printed out in my collection but not sure but that would tell for sure tire sizes. Some with a smooth tire on clutch wheel would put on a tire chain for traction but would only have been needed on wet grass where you would have had traction trouble with the tractor. They would have come from the factory without tires and dealer would have gone to the tire dealer junk tire pile to get tires when that plow was new.
