I'm in the same boat as you! I bought one for my father's A and having trouble hooking it up. I can send you a picture of the plow, but it isn't hooked up. If I find something I'll pass it your way.

You need to give us a little more information on the type of plow, is it a one point hitch, is it a drawbar attachment etc;

Farmall A did not have a touch control lift. so if not a Super A it would have a hand lift or exhaust lift. As I recall the plow hooked up under the belly to holes mounted in torque tube. if you think a cub is a pain to change implements wait till you tackle one of them.

The A version I believe was a bit different. The Super A version (A-193) hooks up just like a Cub except you have the depth control rod going up to the touch control arm where you have the depth lever with the Cub.

well from what has been said I think I have a Super A plow and a regular A tractor don't think it is going to work. Thanks for all the help.

It would work with some creativity.

Basically you need a way to lift and lower the plow in back, and a way to lift and lower the reversed drawbar in front.

A true Farmall A plow is going to be tough to come by. They have a whole separate framework that hangs under the tractor, and two hand lift mechanisms... Lots of parts to get lost over the past 73 years, and most of them have. A complete Farmall A plow is definitely a RARE bird.

Dad's got a plow on his A and is complete. It will be at the Roundup in July if anyone will be there. If I remember correctly, you don't use the drawbar at all. It has to be the most awkward looking thing I've seen, but it seems to plow real well.
