    Default IH Little Genius #8 2-14 plow refurbishing proceeding apace

    Sand blasted the frame, hitch, attachment hardware and repainted per original color scheme. The blue came out too dark, but what the heck.



    The height adjustment lever mechanisms work fine. Needed to replace the wire connections on the adjustment arms that connect the squeeze levers to the locks on those gear-line contraptions.



    Coulters need final adjustment. Rear wheel turns freely.

    Final work: weld a crack in one of the hitch brackets. Lube and it's ready to do its thing.



    I'll find out if the raise/lower clutch mechanism works OK once I hook the plow to the Mahindra 5525 and take it for a spin.

    These old trailer plows are a tad more complex than modern 3pt double bottom plows, but they are fun to play around with.

    What kind of tires did you put on it? The reason I ask is I'm also refurbishing A little genius #8 two bottom.
    Thanks George

    Thanks, now I can see it. Looks good. You need to get the moldboards shinned up.

    Those are BF Goodrich 6 ply 18.4-16A tires (18" wide, 16" dia wheels, 40" tall overall) loaded with water (never freezes around here in the North Sacramento Valley). I bought that 135 in July 2006 from a neighbor who modified it (shorter front axle spindles, 16" wheels) for use in his olive orchard (discing, mowing with flail mower). It would make a nice tractor to mow steep hills since it squats so low. Those wide rears are typically used on large ag equipment like combines, etc.
