I put some pics in the tractor talk forum of the plowing the last day or so. Dang that's harder work than it looks like. I guess I can tell on myself since we are among friends here. I had the 2 bottom plow on and was having a heck of a time with the tractor ('52 8N) choking down and trying to die. I kept having to feather the touch control lever to go up or down and run the tractor about wide open in 1st gear to plow with it. I did this for about an hour and was slap worn out from bending over to hold the lever etc. I stopped for a few minutes to slosh down some water and got to looking and realized I had the top link in the bottom hole. It doesn't do much good to have the lever under the seat down for plowing and not have the dang top link in the top hole so it can sense what is going on with the plow. I swapped it and it plowed just as smooth as silk in half throttle and never choked even once. Boy howdy, I felt like the biggest dummy around after that...lol It was so much easier on me and the tractor when things were set up as they are supposed to be! :oops:
