Tips on plowing with my NAA

I want to use my naa for plowing. What size plow or plows should I be looking for that my tractor could handle. also, what position should I set the two levers. I have read the manual on the draft control but still don't quite understand how to set it. Do I adjust the depth with the position contol first and then use the draft control or do I ignore the position control and just use the draft control. I tried plowing with the position control but was continually adjusting it up and down as the plows would dig deeper when going uphill and bog the engine down.
thanks in advance for any help!

My Dad had an NAA, he used 2x14" and it worked ok, we had heavy clay and hills. Sandy/gravel you may get by with 2x16", we never had a 16" plow though.

We always used position control, little lever up. Your top link on the 3 point hitch length is important. Plow wants to be level at depth. Make sure your sway chains are in good shape.

I was never real good at plow adjustment, it was tinker-tinker for the holy grail, then thankfully the job was done.

I have plowed with a 54' NAA with a 2-14 Ferguson plow. We have pretty heavy soil so we can't use a 16".

In order to properly plow, you must have the top link in the very lowest position on the tractor. Then you push the small lever down to draft control. When you push it down and if your implement position control is all the way up, your plow should raise up. The small lever should move about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch from the draft position to the lift position.

The book recommends 2nd gear but somtimes you have to use 1st. After you are started into the field, let the little lever go and adjust the big lever to the desired depth that you want. You should notice the 2 bottom arms pulling up when the tractor starts to slip. If this doesn't happen, and your tractor spins to a stop, there might be something out of adjustment on the inside.

This is the experience that I have had plowing. It is fun after you get the hang of it!!
