Postby J3 Driver » Thu Oct 04, 2018 1:37 pm

I bought this plownfor my son for Christmas. Got the coulter cleaned up and working well.

Next I started to look at the plow itself. To me it looks like the plow point and share are worn. Lols to be a three piece design.

I’m thinking they might need replaced. Looking at the parts manual for the Cub 194 plow it says see IPM-1 does anyone have a copy of that.

Or what bottom would you recommend. I live in south Central pa and our soil is anywhere from a shale to limestone to clay.

Thanks.

The point of your plow is definitely worn. I'm not sure there much of an option on the point, I have read you can replace the entire plow bottom with a newer international super chief bottom. I'm not sure it that the right name or not. But I would say it be hard to find a 12in one for a cub. What you could change would be the moldbord, you can replace the solid one for a slat wing mold board witch is made for Clay type soil.

That is a super chief bottom on your plow already. It uses a throw away share, and has replaceable shin, and is the last type of bottom manufactured for that plow. There will be a part number on the back of your share ( same goes for other wear parts). It will likely plow just like it is, since there is down pressure on the fast hitch, its just not going to have a great deal of suck since the point of the share is worn or rusted off. If you have an adjustable heel on the landslide you may can squeeze a few more acres out of it.

Thanks all for your expertise.

Not to try to get this thing apart. Might have to take the hot wrench to it.

There are manuals for the cub plows in the PDF section. Look for PO-4 PO-6 and PO-9. Think it's PO-4 that has all the plow moldboard, shine and share parts, while other 2 manuals have the beam and other plow parts.

IH was fond of left hand thread plow bolts, try going opposite if they don't break loose easily. If you are using an impact, and the bolt start spinning, do not try to hold it with your hands. It will cit through leather gloves and skin alike. Tack weld the bolt to the share on wear side, or use a cut off tool and cut the nutt off on the backside.

Heed Joe’s warning about spinning plow bolt. It’s vicious, I know from experience

This is what the back looks like. Think I’ll take it and get it blasted. Then see what I can get loose. The Mennonite gentleman that does blasting for me is an IH guy and great with a torch.

I’d love to have his old T-9
