Place a board, around 12ft long, a 2 X 4 will do AGAINST THE INNER SIDE OF THE RIGHT REAR WHEEL. It should line up with the outside edge of your front shear.
Someone with more knowledge might mention the guidelines for the rolling cutters. I place mine so that they are at least an inch lower than the bottom of the share, and so the the back edge is around 2in away from the share. at any point.
You say you have a disc. John Deere said a field/garden should be thourly disced BEFORE being plowed. After plowing, disc again.
I suppose, depending where your at, and the condition of your soil, BUT down here, in okieland, I disc, and plow in the fall, and dont do anything else till spring. That way the ground catches any rain/snow, and holds it in place. Pour downs dont cause it to wash like it would if it was plowed and disced. I have sandy loam soil.
Dad had a 37 WC, which he pulled a 2 14 that he said was a hard pull in NE Kans a mile from the Mo river. HILLY ground and never committed about it not being able to pull it, AND that with steel wheels. Id think a WD could pull a 2 16, if not a 3 14 in the same ground. WITH RUBBER TIRES
To measure which size shares you have, take a ruler, and measure from the back of the gfront share, at the bottom to the land side at the other share. It will be 12, 14 or 16. As said, IF your shares/moldboard is rusty, it will do a lousy job. Brush the heck out of them with a wire brush, Then spray like WF 45 on them. Do the same thing for 3 days, and then try them out on DRY land. Iff the land is damp, try spraying the sharews and moldboard with paint, and let it dry good, then try plowing. THIS AFTER THE ABOVE BRUSHING AND SPRAYING WITH WD 45 Good luck.
