Okay, went out and grabbed pics of dads plows. A few JD's, an Oliver, and 2 subsoilers. The single bottom JD has the cast Syracuse share on it.

Does somebody have a No-4 parts plow for selling parts?

Thanks Gerrit
This is what I got in the mailbox today! Great item! Now I can connect my plow the right way to my tractor.

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
Hi Tony, I had a look in David Wolfe his plowbook, your plow can be a No-6, what are the beam numbers? The rear wheel lift mechanism looks a little different as the one in the book. Is the landwheel cast with spokes? Maybe we can find out when you have the beam numbers.

Thanks Gerrit

Hi Dan, That is a really old one, beautiful! I looked in the book of David Wolfe, your plow can be a No-2 Pony Engine Gang, three or four bottom. 14 inch only, years build 1914-1916, only the landwheel don't match with the book it has a spoke wheel on the landside. How does your levers looklike? what are the beamnumbers?

Thanks Gerrit

Gerrit , the beam numbers are 422,423,424 .I thought that the lift wheel was incorrect for it. I also have a #5 plow that is a late version as the beam stablelizers are flat across instead of the arched ones like the #2 plow ,it has the correct wheel that will also work on the #2 . Dan

Dan, beam numbers can be correct, only beamnumber 424 stands for the fourth beam, the third beam has the number 425, but model number 3 pony Tractor Plow build 1915-1916 has the numbers 422,423,424 and looks almost the same as the number 2.
I think you should also must have the plow book from David Wolfe, you have more plows in the yard i noticed. The book also says the No-3 has two or three bottoms and the No-2 has three or four.

I guess I better chime in. I started messing with plows in 1998 after seeing the plowing contests at Madison SD. The first plow I restored was a Case Centennial, 2 x 16 which I finished out in red and green. I'll have to see if I can find a picture of it. Here is one of my fav toys, an IH Whirlwind Terracer plow. It is a lot of fun to use and show and I have built several terraces with it.


My current plows are this pick up 3 x16 Kverneland


Here is another pic of it on my 656. That's grease on the bottoms. I don't let it get rusty.


Here is one I should get working at some point. It is actually a set of JI Case bottoms fitted to a mounted lister frame to fit a Farmall Regular.

After hunting quite a while I did find this shot of the Case plow behind my 1936 F20. I no longer have the plow but the tractor still has a place in my heart as the First F20 I restored after driving one for a friend in 1997.


And here is the WD and 2x14 plow
I still plow with this outfit from time to time


I also have my dads Ferguson TO20 with 2x14 plow. I can't fid a good pic of it though. Seems like I don't take pictures of my own outfits at plowdays.

There are a few around. A lot of them were used in the flood irrigated Platte Valley. One collector in our club has several

They were built by Servis out of Dallas TX and based on an IH Little Genius plow frame.

Guess my 2 favorites are my #16 3-14 and #8 full frame 3-14.Bought them both at the same time from an implement dealer and rebuilt them from the ground up.Had to wait awhile on doing the #8 as it was originally bought as a parts plow,almost scrapped it but decided to give it a new lease on life after discovering another #8 full frame at the local scrapyard with the necessary parts I needed for it including a complete rope trip mechanism as mine had been converted to hydraulic lift.Altogether theres parts from several different plows used to rebuild this one,the btms are from a IH 540 semi mounted plow,various levers,linkages and other pieces from several other #8 projects and 3 coulters from an old Case semi mount plow a friend had laying in the weeds.This is a perfect plowday plow,having easy to find btm parts and with the rope trip no hydraulic cylinders to change if someone else wants to use it and it plows rather nicely.

Hi guys,
I am new at this hobby and don't have a tractor yet. I have my "sights" set on a 1938 John Deere Model B. Something deep inside me has always wanted to plow a field; I don't know why. I've always loved the smell of freshly turned earth. I love history! If I buy this old Model B and get it running good, what should I look for in the future to pull behind it to plow with? A one or two-bottom plow? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Alan.

I plowed with a BO Lindeman with a 2-14" bottom plow and it had no problems at all. Don't know how a wheeled version would do but it should easily pull a 16-18" 1bottom plow in any soil. The 2-14" was in sandy grassland.

Allen,
Two 12s may work if the soil in your area is not too heavy.
Generally a JD B is concidered a 1 bottom or 1 plow tractor.
I had an I.H.C. 2-12s slat bottom for many years that we put behind several different 1 plow tractors. It worked fine in light soil and at shallower plowing depths of 6" instaed of 9".
Hope you get the B you are eyeing!
Tony
