Short arm on the furrow wheel side (right side sitting in the seat, long on the landside. Just finished plowing with the WD so I can assure you this is correct! The beaming screw (Large crank handle)tilts the points down when cranked shorter, tilts then up when cranked longer, sets depth of furrow.

Do not screw them all the way in. Set each one about midway- you need some adjustment to level the plow side-to-side when you start out. There are plow manuals (OPERATOR) available to help you with the adjustments. Yeah, I know, I harp about operator manuals, but there is a reason why the manufacturer published them. They kind of tell the buyer how to operate the machines that AC made. They are an asset to newbies, just as they are to those who have been in this business for the last 40 years or so.

JMS/MN were is the best place get an Operators manual for a AC plow and the D-17. I got a service manual but its not what I need right now.

Support the dealers! Check first with AGCO- they bought out AC. Why are dealers disappearing?- because everyone thinks they need to go to e-bay, NAPA, etc, to find stuff? When you buy a tractor/machine, you need the OPERATOR manual- it tells you how to OPERATE it. When you need to fix (service) it- you need the SERVICE manual. When you need parts, you need the PARTS manual. That's pretty basic,right? Don't mean to harp on YOU personally, just so many posts here from people that forget the basics. At least you realize the difference between operation, service, and parts.

I assume you mean the lift arms, the long one goes on the furrow side and the short goes on the land side

I would say just the opposite- the short one should go on the right side, because the tractor wheel, which is in the furrow, is at a lower level than the wheel on the left side (land side). When the tractor is sitting on level ground, the right side of the plow is higher than the left side. Then the plow is level when the right tractor wheel is in the furrow. Also, when hooking up the plow, engage the tongue in the snap-coupler first, then raise the lift arms until the right side latch can be attached, then raise the arms further and latch the left side arm. Snap-coupler refers to the hitching system (tongue and bell housing), not the lift arm latches.

If memory serves me correct (Dad bought the WD45 and plow in 1956), when you turn around in the seat and turn the crank (as you look at it), clockwise- as if screwing it into the ground- you are RAISING the plow. But the book would tell you..........darn, it's in the shop now!
