    Default Ford Plow 2-12"

    This is a Ford Moldboard 2-12" plow. It has no part number placard, but I believe it is referred to as a 101 series. Take a look at the shins and shares. Do they need to be replaced?

    I would expect them to have more point to suck themselves into the ground, don't forget to check the frogs as well.

    Hows the plow cutting now? The shins and moldboard definitely looked used but there still looks to be a lot of body left on them. If it cuts good run with it. If it doesn't look for some new shins and a price before you order maybe try putting a new edge on it with a grinder and give it a shot. If that doesn't work order some new ones.

    By the way, nice plow. a 2-12 is a nice find especially if you have soil with minimal topsoil.

    The points are wore out and need to be replaced.Sharpening will not help. Cant tell for sure about the shins, need a pic from the other side. If the cutting edge of the shin is back to the frogs, then replace them as well. Yes, it does look like a Ford 101 with the "shear pin" option. Ken Sweet

    Yes. Just by looking at the pics it's very easy to see that the shins and especially the shares are extremely worn. Easy and cheap to replace. Do it now before the frog gets worn as others have said. Check the landsides also (the horizontal plate on the rear/backside of each moldboard. Just as important.

    Is that a super c?

    Hows the plow cutting now?
    I'd say it cuts fair. I'm no where near an old plow hand. At the beginning of the row it doesn't want to cut in at first...I sometimes have to back up and re-plow. If I've cut a good furrow and my right front tire is in the grove, then it cuts fine. Seems like the back plow rides a bit high...but I'm sure that is due to lack of me leveling it.

    At the worst spot the shin is about a half inch from the frog. Yes, it has the shear pins.

    I priced new shares from the local Ford stealership. The price was $246 each. I appologized to the man for waisting his time. I also recommended that he not carry that part because no one would buy it at that price. Luckily there is the bay (e-bay that is). I didn't pay that much for the whole plow used.

    Is that a super c?
    Yes, it is a 52 Super C with touch control (no fast hitch) that has had a homemade 3-point added. Seems to work OK.

    Folks think a 12" share is easy to find. It is not. A 12" share for a Ford 101 plow has two bolt holes. The 14" and 16" shares have 3 bolt holes. TSC carries shares and shins...but not the two bolt hole variety. I scored some 12" ford shares made by Adams on the bay (thanks John Shea @ grandpastractor.com). I looked all over...even Wiese doesn't make em any more.

    Just for future reference: you can use the 3-hole, 14" shares on your plow. Two of the holes are the same as the two on the original share and the extra length just extends into the all ready cut furrow.

    I think my plow is identical to yours, except I don't have the rolling landslide. I am running the 3-hole, 14" shares now. I did cut-off most of the excess length, and I filled the extra hole with a welder - but I understand a lot of people run them without any modifications.

    Nice looking Super C. I grew-up on a 1952, tricycle Super C (without a 2 or 3 point rear lift).
