Thawed enough to plow today so I turned the field that I was able to rent today. I wanted to plow it with my 400 but it was still a bit frozen when I started and the smaller plow wouldn't break through it. So I used Jeff's 2394 and oliver 5-16's plow which gave us a good chance to break in the new engine. The engine runs great. I had no idea how bad the engine was before the overhaul. LOL Did find a hydraulic oil leak at that cast piece that goes at the rear of the oil pan and covers the flywheel that I cussed about during the overhaul. I'm not looking forward to taking that off again but it will have to be done. The plowing was tough since this is heavy clay and was in pasture for 15 years. Made the 2394 snort pretty good sometimes. Here's a short video too.

And to think, we used to pull 5-16s with an 870.

We started with 4-16's behind our 870 then went to 5-16's, but you would never do that in this field. We farmed some land not far from this while we had our 870 and it would struggle with 4-16's. We had a hard time with 5-16's behind our 970.

Jon: 2390 working that hard, front end off the ground at times, pulling 5-16's? Something is wrong w/ the plow. Looks like the plow is crowding out beyond 16". Long landsides will cure that.

I dunno john , upstate ny may have you spoiled LOL ..,here in southern ind hills ,, we get into some nasty hard pullin stuff that the deer boys just cry over ,, maybe mnisota is like that too LOL ,,.that is impressive how the 2390 snorted and pulled the wheels ,, did you create those theatrix jon ? ,agreed ,rolling coulters would help ease the power need,, do you have them tuked away in the shed or along a fence row . if not ,, I will watch for some at consignment auction and pik some up for you ,, and you can stop by and pik them up .just let me knoew if I should watch for some .. I think my family folklore recollects that oliver plows are supposed to pull easy like a case plow .....

John, Looks to me that there are no coulters on that plow. I think that plowing without coulters in sod could certainly make the plow crowd. Al
