Syracuse Chilled Plow Model 26 - info and use?

I just acquired this Model 26 and it looks like it should have additional parts that come off of it. Trying to figure out what it looked like in original form and how it worked.

Tom,
Thank you for the wonderful like. Very useful information.
I like the trail scoop as well.
It's funny to think about some folks trying to use a slip scraper (the trail Scoop) without first plowing the ground with either a regular or a hillside plow. My dad was working on a road project in the thirties when the scraper hit a rock. Something didn't work right and he said he ended up damned near to the neck yoke on the mule's harness. They both looked at him and stood stock still until he gathered himself up and got untangled. Said the mules saved his life.

Interesting. I wonder if my beam was a replacement of some sort since mine is straight and all the others seem curved. Cool stuff.
