Driving faster can help the wing extensions, dirt rolls over faster.

Dad made some from old car or truck leaf springs, bolted on the top corner of the bottom where a extension would go.

Rarely see them or the cover boards around here on any plow. I agree a cover board would make it more prone to plugging. They do help tick in the trash tho, leave a blacker field.

As mentioned a 12 inch bottom just comes from the factory ready to plug, not much room between bottoms. Good, big, well adjusted coulters help a lot. Not old worn down ones.

The old plows came with the tractor new in 1957 so I hate to just take the middle one off.

I will just keep an eye out for a set of 2x16's they should pull ok and maybe I can drive faster, say first gear high range. Now I have to drive in low range third gear too pull the plows.

Will look for plows with the kick back option as if you hang a stump with these old plows it will give you a thrill.

Thanks for the input.

In 1957 Cover boards were and add on for probably everybody. I was still in high school and the neighbors bought a set for there new 3 bottom John Deere plow. The cover boards were orange and did not come from Deere. In fact when I started with the Oliver dealer in 1960 they were also an add on as they were not available from Oliver yet.
