New Super Chief moldboard plow. Some questions.

Postby Frozenstate » Sun Feb 11, 2018 7:48 pm

I just picked up this Super Chief moldboard plow. It has a decal showing an adjustment, what exactly does the arrow up and arrow down do? Where would you set it. Also how does the share look, it it still good, or should I replace It? Is this plow better than my regular fast hitch Plow? I won't regret selling my regular plow and keeping the Super Chief? Sorry for the upside down pics, new to this resizing thing.

I could be wrong but do not believe that is a super chief plow but a very nice plow anyway, do you see the adjustment on the plow the decal shows?perhaps someone along the way put the wrong decals on it, the share on a super chief is a straight edge with no curves in it I am pretty sure, I have a NOS Super Chief one I can take pics of tommorrow

Looks like a Super Chief bottom with a deep suck share on it to me. Example: http://www.ihpartsandequipment.com/impl ... share.html

The bolt with the arrow on it is an eccentric bolt, you can turn it to make the plow bottom point down a little more to make it go in the ground easier.

By the way, "Super Chief" was the name of the plow bottom itself. They were a replacement for the earlier Plow Chief, although I think you could order a plow with either type of bottom for a while.

Is it a plow for a Cub or 140?

Here's a Super Chief Plow that I had several years ago with a brand new IH Share;
Image

Bought the share from Ken Updike in 2007, P/N 1980953C2 (original share on this plow had P/N IH 544601R1 and "3 HT SOLID" stamped in it.)

Need to look at Catalog PO-10 as it has all the plow bottoms listed in it. I thought I had a copy of it but can't put my eyes on it at the moment.

Yours has plenty of life left in it.

It has "CUB" stamped in the beam after the numbers.

you can see the straight share on the plow in Petes pic, that is Super Chief, I bet Super A is correct that someone jammed the wrong share on your plow

Will it work like that, or should it be replaced with the straight share? Was this an option, or just wrong?

The arrow up allows the pitch of the plow to be more agressive. This is accomplished by the plows moldboard and share moving in the frog which is attached to the beam. I would set it to arrow down position which is the nomal setting at first. If not plowing deep enough or in hard ground move the Arrow to the up position.
Your share is still in usable condtion. The share is of the one piece throw away type and is still in production (Agri Supply has them for sure). There are several different shares available...Deep Suck, Rock, etc.
Super Chief was the latest plow produced by IH. Do not know if its a better plow but, parts are somewhat easier to find. I would not sell any thing until I made sure the Super Chief does what you want it to do. You should be well satisfied with your new plow.

BTW...It should have CUB stamped in the beam.

I type too slow :D

IH made several different share types for the Super Chief bottom. That's a deep suck share, mimics the older plow bottoms with a long point. I don't see any reason to think that is the wrong share for that plow bottom. Here's another new one. http://www.ihpartsandequipment.com/impl ... share.html

Frozenstate, It's a 12" bottom which will make the share parts harder to find. Your share has some wear but it should work ok, just make sure it's not wearing into the frog (the "backbone" of the bottom, everything else bolts to it.) If you need to replace any parts see if you can find the original number stamped in the part. Most Super Chief parts are still available through caseIH.

How do you set the adjustment, do you loosen more than the one bolt? Do you ever sharpen the share, if so what is the best way?

The shares are meant to be replaced when they are worn.

Peter, thank you for posting that manual!

Thank you so much for that manual. It really spells everything out. Just knowing the share bolts are left hand threads could save a lot of time!
