Welcome to the forum.

Here is a link to probably the best single document for metal plates. Bear in mind that older manuals reflected corn hybrids that are not common to find seed for anymore and new plates are made of plastic with different numbering systems. Usually you will get a plastic plate with a large sack of seed or a specific recommendation.

http://www.farmallcub.com/[ Sorry, direct links to manual section is not allowed. ]/download.php?fname=./files/Cub%20Attachments/Planters-Fertilizer/Planting%20Information%207-5-55%20OCR.pdf

See the note on the cover for printing instructions. To get the accurate size the original manual should be used but shrinking the print compensates for the growth that happens in scanning and printing. The idea is to hold up the seed to the profiles and see which one fits.

I have a pretty good collection that you can see here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.101518556547550.3475.100000682194640&type=1&l=fb05ce04e5

Try it again. For some reason the album privacy was changed.

I use the Lincoln Ag plastic plates in the 174. I measure several seeds and get an average size, and buy the plate based on that average measurement (length of seed, height of seed, width of seed). Has been working well so far.

With the price of the IH iron sunflower plates ( last new ones in stock were $75), I don't even use mine. I use the plastic ones from Lincoln Ag for something like $15. The giants are too irregular for a planter but the ones grown commercially drop nicely. I may actually try again this year now that I have an electric fence up.
