Cub F-11 Plow LH Plow Chief?

Postby Super A » Sun Oct 07, 2018 1:26 pm

Still on "vacation" from hurricane florence, so I drove over to Shane Nelson's the other day and picked up a >NICE< Cub F-11 plow. This is one of those items I have been holding out for a "good one" for a long time and I think I've found it.

The iron on it is in pretty good shape. I worked with it a little on Friday, trying to get it dialed in and I believe that I'm probably going to have to replace the share and point on the left bottom. The share is worn about a half inch more than the right one, and it won't penetrate like the right one will.

Poking around the manuals, looks like the original share is 515713R5. I found a website that lists a NOS share that is supposed to be a replacement for 515713R5. The replacement number is 517025R3, and I can't seem to find any info on it. I'd just like to verify that it will sub for 515713R5. Does anyone know if that is correct?

Thanks,
Al

Did you look at the plow manual in PDF. I think it's PO-4 or po-6 that has the shares parts in em.

Well I figured out the problem. It was late the other night when I was looking in the book, and I just missed it.....it's right there plain as day....it's a "cobblestone" share instead of a regular one.

Is the soil there rocky? Here it's clay to loamy red clay and tons of roots from grass ( Bahia) as I'm flipping cow fields to crop fields.

No. Mostly sandy.

I'd then try to find another share as that's made for rocky ground.

The dimensions of the share appear to be the same. I suspect the difference might be in the makeup of the steel to resist wear/breakage.

If they are shaped the same then I would think that too. Probably harder outside with more flexible center so instead of shattering it has some flex but still hardness to prevent damage. Those are easy to spot as u can actually see 3 layer's in em as the hardened steel on outside with the softer steel center. I've heard they also polish up better as the hardened steel polishes up to a high shine vs the chilled or just high carbon steel ones.
