  1. Thanks everyone. What’s interesting about my plow is there appears to be a lot of blue paint remains on several pieces. Looks like a lot of the frame was blue at one point. Not sure if that’s primer, or if this plow was very blue at one point. I will probably paint the frame red, colters and tail wheel blue, not sure about the moldboards. I’ve found several different pictures of C20 plows, all painted differently. Painting the plow will be a summer of 2022 project. I painted my disc plow summer of 2020, and here’s the color scheme I did on it.
  2. Can anyone tell me the paint scheme for a C20 two bottom moldboard plow? Which pieces are blue and should the moldboards be black? My plow has colters and a tail wheel. No gauge wheel or any fancy scrapers on the colters. Thanks, Brody
  3. Finished Installing the gauges last weekend and had an opportunity to test out the new plow yesterday.
  4. Best I can tell on my new gauge 180 degrees is the L in cold and 200 is right in between cold and run. Didn’t get the water any hotter on the stove because I didn’t have a good way to keep the bulb in the water and I couldn’t keep the water at a very stable temperature for long.
  5. Ordered new gauges from precision tractor to replace the ugly universal gauges currently in the 240. It already has a original fuel gauge so I only had to buy temp oil and amp gauges. Also went on a road trip to buy a fast hitch 3pt adapter and two bottom plow. Really only needed the 3pt adapter but the plow was way to cheap of a deal not to buy it.
  6. Thank you for pictures! May build a set of these instead of welding on every small point implement we come across.
  7. Had to drop a bottom off of this snap coupler plow to even begin to be able to plow this field.
  8. Also, should the second colter be turned around or slid back on the frame where it is closer to the back moldboard, or is it correct where it is now?
  9. Do you have a picture of the filler plates? We’ve toyed with the idea of putting filler plates in the fast hitch sockets but didn’t know that was something IH actually made. Do the filler plates have a lip to catch the end of the socket?
  10. Yep, the 240 is large point and the plow is small point. I will tack some metal to the points on the plow to make it large point, but easy to remove if I sell the plow. Here’s a picture of what I did to a c200 disc plow I had the same issue with. Thanks for the verification that is a C20 plow. It almost looks like to much plow for this size tractor, but then again all I have plowed is North Carolina red clay.
  11. Can anyone tell me the model of this plow? I think it is a C20 but I’m not sure.
  12. Thanks everyone, an infrared thermometer is a good idea. I’ll also check the new gauge in a pan on the stove to see what it does. I think I’ll order this gauge from precision tractor instead of the Steiner one. I want this kind of gauge for the original look of it. I’ve ran numerical gauges before on three different tractors, I was just wondering how the numbers would line up with this gauge.
  13. What is the temperature range for the green “run” area of this temp gauge? Is it 170-200 ish? Also what temperature does the cold start and hot end? I’ve heard normal operating temp is when the needle is on the “n”, what is that temperature? Thanks, Brody https://www.steinertractor.com/IHS531-Water-Temperature-Gauge Also, is this Steiner gauge reliable to use or is their another place I should get this gauge from.
  14. So now the 240 has nice new bkt tires all the way around. I can’t really think of anything else left to do to the 240, other than drive the wheels off it!
  15. 1st picture is with 5.50-16 implement tires 2nd picture is with the new bkt 6.00-16 tri ribs
