Came with every thing to mount it to my SC except the implement bolts. Not sure if they are the same as a cubs or if they are different?

I am not sure, but I think an SC uses 3/4 inch bolts rather than the 5/8 a cub uses.

You get axle clamps? They are the only thing I can think of that I'm not seeing in the pictures. I'm not sure on the bolt sizes either.

Jim I have the brackets that mount it to the axle and the bracket that bolts to the right side light bar for the adjusting rod. Seems to be a complete set up minus the bolts for the torque tube.

Ill have to research the bolts a little more. The PO gave me a copy of the manual so it should state in there some ware. I havent had a chance to look at it yet. One of the landslides is worn pretty bad, nor sure were to get parts for these plows. I could always fab something up out of some 3/8 plate i guess.

Just got done looking at my copy of the manual. It is missing or leaves out the taper head bolts and the actual plow with parts break down. I will look for nthe bolts that John called out.

Has any one rebuilt one of these set ups. This is a 1952, C-295-A Two Furrow One-Way Moldboard Plow (12" and 14") Built 1951 to 1955?

Look for the listings of the right and left hitch rail supports (the parts held on by these bolts). listed below each of them you should find a call out for the bolt:

Thanks John and Jim you guys were right on with the info. I found some new old stock bolts and they will be ariving in the mail soon.

Now for my next question. The actual plows are not shown in the parts break down in the manual. I did some research and it seams there were two sizes, 12" and 14". What determins the size?

and there are two types , the Super Chief and the Plow Chief. I think I have the Plow Chief. I found some parts on the internet but I need the actual IH part numbers to cross over to their numbers. Thanks again.

Yes, you have Plow Chief bottoms. Measure directly across center to center of the 2 beams. It will measure either 12 or 14 inches.

The bottoms are treated as separate implements. They have their own parts books.

Unfortunately most plow chief stuff is hard to find if not impossible. You can still find the chisel points new in low-quality "pig iron" at places like Agri Supply. The rest, not so much.
