I have a Ford Dearborn plow serial # I425 - model # I0-232 - that I am told was manufactured for the Fordson Major tractor. It is a 3 bottom plow with 3 coulter wheels and end gauge wheel WITH an additional car/truck wheel on the right side also. I was told this was for depth control since the Fordson Major did not have draft control.
Could someone else PLEASE enlighten me with additional pictures and a possible price from the one I received from Scott.

If that is the case, another YT subscriber unintentionally informed me wrong over the phone evidently..... Here's what I DO know::: the plow has 3 moldboards - 3 coulter wheels - 1 car/truck tire on left - steel end wheel - tag attached to plow says Dearborn, manufactured in USA, tractor & implement division, Ford Motor Company, Birmingham Michigan - Serial # I425, Model #I0-232....

Whether or not it was made for the Fordson Major tractors, I have not seen any other plows with the side wheel.. That makes mine very unique and hopefully valuable....

That was just an option for use with tractors like the Major that did not have the depth control built in. For it to say Dearborn the plow had to have been made between 1948 and 1954 as in 55 they put the Ford name on the red implements. If you used an after market 3 point hitch kit on like a Farmall M or John Deere A you would need that wheel as they had no depth control

Ford Dearborn in America never made a plow for the FORDSON MAJOR Tractor made at Dagenham in the UK. All dearborn implments were for CAT1 linkage and all Fordson Majors had CAT2 linkage. MJ

Thanks for the comments Leroy,

Not computer literate enough to attach a picture so you can see it - yes the tire is on the left side (sorry for the incorrect original message) as the dirt is furrowed to the right. No it was not a 4 bottom plow and end wheel is a steel disc that rides in last furrow if I remember correctly.... I was a young boy when it was primarily used. Not a bad patina on it for the age, but I've never seen another plow with one wheel on the side.

As for a light front end, I cannot remember much about that but our Fordson Major did not have any hydraulics on the back. There are some turn buckles on the plow but I thought they were for ride/plow leveling when plowing. It has the large cat 2 pins which is why I am unable to use it (if I wanted too). My cell # is 336-682-4711 if you want some text pictures.

Thanks Charlie

The guage-depth wheel is supposed to be on the left side, not right unless that happens to be a plow that was made as a left hand plow and not a right hand as is the normal here in the states. And to be a plow for a Mojor I believe it would be a catagorie 2 hitch. End guage wheel would not be a guage whel at all but to carry the rear end of a semi mount plow. Does it have a place for a remote hydrolic cylinder? Think it should have. That is to take the plow weight instead of plow weight making front end of tractor lite weight. Could it have been a 4 bottom plow at one time with one removed as the Fordson was considered a 4 plow tractor. That was the way those plows were made for the 800 series tractors. But they were catagorir 1 hitch.

[quote="CVPost-DeltaRed"](quoted from post at 07:14:11 07/12/19) Wide range. anywhere from just above scrap,to several hundred,depending on condition.From you description,300 to 400.[/quote]

Moldboards are in good shape - 2 of 3 Coulter wheels and end gauge wheel are in good shape also. Side wheel rubber is worn but wheel spins freely. Haven't tried to clean and paint the plow but seems kinda meaningless if your going to plow with it and just wear it off. But THANKS to the both of you for the responses.
Would anyone else have any pictures of another identical plow??

Price is highly variable. A plow is worth much more painted up nice with new wear parts. It is worth much less if it is all rusty and neglected, with worn out shares and moldboards.
