I hooked the plow to my WD tonight and tried to plow my uncles garden. The back two moldboards didn't seem to flip the sod over far enough and it would just fall back to the ground instead of filling in the next furrow. It also didn't seem to plow very deep but I searched the archives and have an idea how to adjust that now. If anyone can help as far as the furrows go I would appreciate it. Thanks, Brandon

I put a set of AC mold board tip extensions on my plow for a little extra help in rolling the soil over. They help a lot when you can't get enough speed up to throw the soil over.

The left and right side turnbuckles should be adjusted so that when the right rear tractor wheel is in the furrow, the plow frame is level. A purist would adjust the turnbuckles to start each land, and readjust to plow the remainder of each land. Perhaps a less ambitious purist would start all lands, and then readjust to finish all of them. Real farmers just find the level setting, and leave it there, accepting the fact that the first round on each land will be a bit out of kilter. In regard to depth- when you are in the seat, and turn around to look at the crank which adjusts the depth, just remember that the plow reacts just opposite of how you look at it- if you turn the crank clockwise, into the ground, the plow will be coming UP, not down. You should be plowing in second or third gear, too slow will not turn over the furrows properly. However, in sod, even in second gear, you may need cover boards to get the furrow to turn over.

MY 2 BOTTOM MANUAL SAYS TO ADJUST THE TURNBUCKLE IN FRONT TO LOWER THE REAR OF THE PLOW. ALSO ON THE SECOND PASS STAND BEHIND THE PLOW AND IT SHOULD TIP A LITTLE TO THE LEFT TO ENTER PROPERLY. THIS CAN BE ADJUSTED WITH THE LEFT AND RIGHT LIFT TURNBUCKLES OR ON THE CROSS MEMBER WHERE THE LIFT ARMS ATTACH.
SOUNDS CLEAR AS MUD, BUT DON'T GIVE UP.
HOPE THIS HELPS.
HAVE FUN WITH YOUR TRACTOR

There is no turnbuckle in front. They are on the left and right side of the plow, part of the attaching links to the lift arms. Plowing depth is set with the adjusting crank on the plow.

Allischalmersbob,
Thanks for the reply, right after I posted the question i found the manual for the plow. What you said matches what my manual says.

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
