I believe that you are referring to the diagonal brace that runs from the bottom of the right lift link to the top of the left lift link. The brace link is not adjustable, but it does slide to allow the plow to sway when turning a slight corner, but stops it from swinging to far to the left. It's purpose is to keep the RH plow from banging into the LH plow when both are mounted. When using just the RH plow it serves no purpose that I can determine and it being missing should not cause the problem you are having. Most of the B plows I see the links are bent to some degree. I straightened out the links on our B plow several years ago and they are bent again now. Something is putting your links in a bad bind if they are snapping completely off. I would suggest that you have a buddy drive while you watch the plow work. It should be obvious what is causing it, but it's hard to diagnose over the 'puter.

I also have a B with hydraulics , but no lift arms.Have seen a 39 B with a manual lift arm ,looks like one square bracket. Is this right? I want to get a set of lift arms that would work for a plow but don't know what they look like.Are there different kinds?

Dwight, There is at least three different styles of rock shafts and lift arms for the B plow. On one type the rockshaft is not easily detachable from the lift arms and one had to remove the rockshaft to remove the plow. I have seen two types of quick detachable lift arms that allow quick removal of the plow by leaving the rockshaft on the tractor. Because they are hard to detach from the plow beam the lift arms are generaly with the beams whether the lift arms are of the quick detachable type or not. The rock shafts and brackets are a little tougher to find than the plows themslves for some reason. IF you have a way to send pictues I can help you identify what you have now and maybe save you from buying the wrong stuff to complete your outfit. I also have pictures of our quick attach B plow that I can send by E-mail.

I thought about welding the loop at the end of the links closed. They probably got fatigued from being rebent too many times. I didn't have a welder when I put on the chains.

Could the link also help keep the plow on track? Sometimes it loses it's bite and skips into the open furrow. Mostly when the ground is too dry.

The plow is led from the hitch point up front and follows what is called it's natural line of draft just like a walking plow for a team of horses. The lift links are supposed to lift the plow out of the ground and hold it level when plowing, nothing else. The plows rely on the suck of the share, or point to stay in the ground. Restoring it will keep the plow in the ground except under very hard ground conditions. If your point is made of steel and not completely worn out the easiest way to restore the suck is to set the plow down on a brick, or board about 2-3" behind the point and and wack the point with a 4lb hammer. If your a solid ground, like a driveway two good wacks will be OK. The point should be down some from the rest of the share and landslide, but don't get carried away or the plow will head to China. I can't post a picture here but if you would E-mail me I can send you a picture of what the share should look like.
