Gotcha! for plowing, do the front wheels need to be set the same? Thanks

Yes, you want the front wheels to match. Where you've got them now you'll be in a constant battle to keep the right front tire just out of the furrow. When it's the same width (inside of sidewall, not tire center) you drop the right front tire into the furrow and hug the left edge. It'll plow beautifully.

For the life of me I don't know how you got a 193 plow 12" deep. You sure it's not 12 centimeters?????

Here's a video I took from the seat of my tractor at a plow day. You can see the right tire in the furrow and how it plows when everything is working properly: VIDEO ON YOUTUBE (Ignore the light. It shook loose earlier in the day.)

Well, there may have been a tad bit of literary license taken :) Still, when one side was on the crest of the sideways dirt (that hadn't turned over) and the other side was in the furrow (it had to be at least 10") and I really thought I might turn over, it sure looked like a foot! Thanks again, guys.

BTW and slightly different subject but in the same vein...I've read here about the dangers associated with jacking up the rear and how to wedge the front. Is this still the case when jacking both sides of the rear with two jacks such as when swapping out the right/left tires/rims?

It wouldn't hurt to be safe.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I saw that one, Dale. That's why I asked. I don't need that!

Hi,
Yes using the wedges is a good idea when removing rear wheels on a Cub. Hammer them in tight, and check them some to be sure they don't come loose during the work.
Make them so they don't hit on the small end before tightening up in the upper and lower sides.
Below is a pic from Dale Finch. :)

For a little added saftey, you might want to make sure the wedges stay in place with some clamps.
