If you look around the internet long enough you will find a good bit of info on setting up a plow.

Here are two old publications that are online:
Farmers Bulletin No. 1690. Plowing With Moldboard Plows.
This is a USDA publication.

Tractor Plowing At It's Best.
This was from IH.

BTW that's a good looking plow.
Have fun.

Thanks for the suggestion! The coultours are every worn and one is bent at one point does anyone sell them new? I can’t find parts anywhere and no one wants to pry out an old plow. Usually it’s lawn art. :evil:

What is worn and what is bent? The disks or the standards?

Coulter depth is adjustable via the standard. Bent coulter, hammer and anvil to straighten.

If you have not been able to identify the plow model number and manufacturer, search for an operator's manual for any make, similiar plow. Adjustments and how to operate the plow will be very close to your plow.

If you can determine what size the original coulter disks were, Agri-Supply may have replacements.

I think it’s a 14 inch, how would I measure it to make sure? Would that matter when getting new coulters?

With a multiple bottom plow, you can simply measure the spacing between adjacent beams, directly crosswise and center-to-center. Don's comment wasn't about the plow size, but the diameter of the coulter disks themselves. For a number 8 plow, the originals were probably 16", although there was an option of 18". Due to wear, your old ones will probably measure a lot less than their original size.

The reason I was asking about how to measure the plow is I wasn’t sure if the size of the plow would determine the coulter size

You don't need to widen the tires. You can shift the plow left and right by changing how the plow's hitch attaches to that crosswise bar with all the holes in it. You want to adjust the plow so the right lower corner of the right share lines up with the inside sidewall of the right tractor tire. Then when you drive with the right tire in the previous furrow the plow cuts the next furrow right against it.

Don't be tempted to cheat by moving the clevis along the draw bar. That pull from the plow will try to steer the tractor and you'll end up fighting it. For that matter, I wonder if it might be better not to use the swinging draw bar with the plow. Someone who knows more about that might weigh in.

How does this look for adjustment?

It may be camera angle or optical illusion, but the right hand bottom (as seen in the photo) appears to be set higher than the other one. Is that correct?

It looks pretty good. You might find you have to tweak it a bit once it's in the ground.

As Don pointed out, as it sits now it looks like the right bottom (in direction of travel, not how the picture is taken) will run lower than the left. Once it's in the ground you need to make sure they're both at the same depth.

It may be because it’s raised up and both were not at the same setting. And I think the photo Was taken at an angle and since they are not next to each other it appears that way, they are exactly how they were when I got it but I’ll check it with a level tomorrow
