blackhawk 2 row corn planter

I recently picked up a 2 row Blackhawk corn planter. Would like to get it to work for planting sweet corn & beans. Have different plates - wondering how to determine what plates to use for what seed. Have never ran a corn planter before! (This has been converted from horse to tractor.) Also the fertilizer tubes that run from the canisters down are in bad shape (are gone!)- wondering what I can use as a replacement? Is it possible to get any information or parts for this - not sure of the model # or if there is one? Thanks in advance for any or all advice!

I would pick a plate that fit two kernels of corn - or just one if you have a large plate selection.

here's how to tell how much you re planting - use a dirt lane, or even a blacktop road and drop the planter in gear and "plant" as you drive down the lane. Then go back on your hands and knees and count the kernels per yard, or whatever measure you want to see if you are dropping at the desired rate. It is IMPORTANT to drive at the same speed you intend to plant because edge drop plates drop fewer kernels as you go faster.

Here are two plates I use to plant string beans and pumpkins with my MaCormick planter on my Farmall Cub.

Look on line at McMaster Carr. They have a lot of tubes you can use. They are a good source for replacement parts.

Generic Radiator hoses of the right size work OK for fertilizer tubes.
