The Disc Steering Guide was a Dearborn feature. The Ferguson-Sherman cultivators had a rectangular type steering fin. Both did exactly that -help guide the cultivator to follow the tractor. When Dearborn Motors began as the Ford distributor for tractors and implements after Henry II fired Harry Ferguson in 1946, to avoid copyright infringement, Dearborn had to alter some things slightly. The 14" width of the cultivator was changed to 15" and the rolling steering guide were most likely some of those alterations. Ferguson-Sherman implements were painted Ford M2888 Dark Gray -like the 9N tractor. The Dearborn line was all painted Ford Vermilion Red like the 8N.

All the time I had the cultivator I wondered about the single disc. Nothing we farmed with back in the day had anything like that except the plow. I do remember some of the old front mounted cultivators were coupled to the steering to keep the shovels in the rows and out of the corn or beans.
