  1. Put heavy grease on the moldboard ,points ,coulters and landslides. 
    Don’t paint them . Looks like you got sand . Sand embedded in paint and the plows won’t scoured. Will give you fits . 
    A tip from a national plowman gave me . All the competitors in Minnesota competition that painted their plows lost because their plows would not scour because of sand . Those that greased their plows won . Take it from one of the best . Don’t paint. 

    My friend competes, plows with Case . 85 years old and still competes . If you need help I would also ask him . I’ll give you his number . He will talk. Learn more from him about my plows in an hour  than ever. 

    good for you !

  2. What is your soil ? 

    Furrow width ? Depth should be one half the width ! 
    is the plow frame level ?

    if not the soil is not pulverizing on the moldboard scour , the shares are going to deep and jumping upwards with vertical draft out like a planes on the edge of door frame. Hoppin over end grain .

    The new shares may not be correct for your soil . There infinity number of shares for soils from Minnesota to Texas . One share will work in Ohio but not Nebraska. Thunder they differ in the same field here .

    Does the front of the tractor want to be steering corrected all the time, if it does the horizontal draft is off . Looks like it is from the compaction of soil in the shine. 
    Your landslides are supposed to 1/16 1/8 inch clearance , landslides are only there correct the plow if the shares hit a rock to guide the plow straight , not to keep it straight. 

    I had a ih mounted plow the rear beam was bent from trees root , never got that one right , 

    many things  to look at with  plow issues. 

    Allis Chalmers had a beam exchange program,if you had a bent one you could exchange it for one that was correct.

    Going to be some serious fan work and new metal going into the front frame but I’m pretty happy with how she’s sitting. Can probably even get it a few inches farther ahead which would really help with the firewall and future maintenance. Doubt I’ll be able to get the starter on or off with Out pulling the engine though... maybe with some more crossmember surgery. Man I have the best/worst ideas when I’ve got a cold snack in hand...




    Looks like a hemi !

    Had to go find some welding gas today, got the frame put back together enough to roll it out finally. It’s been bolted to the floor for WAY too long. Engine sits nice now with the original suspension. Got a full bay back!






    At first I thought the tanks were for blowing up balloons  💭 

    I got read the posts first before jumping to conclusions, bad habit.

    Took one of my breathers apart, got the mesh out, soaked it in gas, then lit on fire. That cleans things up rather nicely. have seen that method talked about on the Orange board many times but don't remember seeing it here before.

    Ain’t going to do that gas cleaning. Don’t want to blow my eyeglasses off my head cost me to much . Pressure washer with purple power , or purple power, In old roaster pan on turkeys  fryer and boil mesh it clean .

    That’s neat.  The ultimate question is though, what is a better garden tractor, the cub or AC G. 

    A guy in the full time nursery business all his life told me they are better than a cub. he had 6 of them up until recently . So that only comparison I can go by . You want better details I’ll ask him for you?
