Here is a hard to find JD plow I snooped out of the weeds recently. First two photos is how I found it in back of an old farmyard sunk into the dirt for many years.
Last two photos show how well it survived. It was in high ground with light dry soil and is in real good shape!
Nothing makes an old iron hound feel better than finding great old pieces of history like these and getting them home to our collections

Tony, that is a nice one, do you know what the model is ?

Hello Pitalplace, my No-4 has a bottlecap wheel like that. what kind of parts do you have for the No-4?
I am looking for a kind of bracketlever fitted on the furrow side axle, which has a casting number D-743 or so.

Thanks gerrit

Gerrit,
I do not know what model or number that JD plow in post #14 is. I was told it was paired with a late 20s D tractor when new.

Also I am still hoping someone can identify the Oliver plow in post #1.

I understand draft characteristics of tractor drawn antique plows pretty well. I have learned how to set and plow good enough to do nice looking field work. I am not a plow model expert however, and though I recognize the manufacturer names of most plows I do not know model numbers of hardly any of them.
Thanks for all the interest everyone!
Tony

Tony,
The Oliver plow you have question about is one of the following:
No. 410
No. 412
No. 414
It depends on the plow width on what the number would be. I do have the operators and parts manual for it that I could try top scan if you need me to. The form number of the manual is SB-43-1A being 8 pages in length. I hope this helps.

Kelly

Thank you Kelly!
Now I just need to figure out how to tell if my 4-16s is a model 410, 412 or 414. Would be interesting to put date of manufacture on it as well.
Implement manuals are readilly available much of the time, perhaps I can get one of my own now that I know what I am looking for.
This is a good start, thanks again,
Tony
