Both of them have the "C" stamped in to the FH point as well. Thanks for telling what that's for Brandon.

Shane,
Also likely they did the change to a threaded point to get rid of the custom bolt that cost me over $10 back in 2006.
The AgriSupply Spearpoint is also a threaded unit.
Would be interesting to know if both the IH Spearpoint and the AgriSupply Spearpoint are made in the same Chinese factory.
Big difference in cost!

Peter, it would be interesting to know if they are cast in the same factory, I can't believe the price IH wants for that point. I ordered 2 from Agri-Supply yesterday @$7.99 each. I contacted ploworx last week but never heard anything back.

Shane,
You do get what you pay for.
I haven't plowed in several years but the AgriSupply point I have on it now has been there since ConnectiCubFest 2010. It replaced an AgriSupply point that snapped in two when I hit a rock. Discovered a nice big air pocket in the casting.

LOVE reading these threads of yours Shane, not only do I learn many things I get to see your work. You do some awesome work when you tackle a restore! I as of yesterday now have something I didn't, the arm on the back, (I am still learning terms, rockshaft?) I dont believe I could use a plow like that here though, we have iceberg rocks and just plain ledgerock. Solid limestone that goes down forever. The roadgraders just bounce over there areas and we try to miss them driving on the dirt roads. I have resorted to the backhoe on a few rocks and a pesky saucer sized rock sticking up ends up being a boulder I have to drag away then I need to find dirt to fill the hole :shock:. I remember my grandfather plowing on the farm when I was a boy, it was my job to grease the plows to stop them from rusting so they would scour faster the next season. I have seen plows but I am afraid I would simply break it or something on the tractor if I tried to use one here. Love to see your finished projects though, keep up the good work, cant wait to see your next project and learn more about these awesome little tractors we are addicted too :worthy:

Peter, that is exactly what I fear I would have if I plowed here, busted and broken pieces of a plow, :shock:

tmays wrote:Nice! You wouldn’t happen to have a list of bolts needed for this restoration, would you? I have one I’m planning on restoring

This should be every bolt on these plows for the Plow Chief bottom. The Super Chief has more since it has the replaceable shin. IH has all these bolts listed with the plow pictures and some of the 1 1/4" long I listed they call for 1 1/8" long but I can't find them around here so 1 1/4" works.

Moldboard 3/8" plow bolts
3 @ 1 1/4" w/nuts
2 @ 1 1/2" w/nuts

Moldboard extension 3/8" plow bolts
2 @ 1 1/4" W/nuts

Share 3/8" plow bolts
3 @ 1 1/4" w/nuts

Land side 7/16" plow bolts
1 @ 1 3/4" w/nut
1 @ 1 1/4" w/nut

Land side heel 3/8" plow bolts
1 @ 1 3/4" w/nut
1 @ 1 1/2" w/nut

Spear point
1/2" hex head
1 @ 7/8"

7/16" hex head
1 @ 1 1/2" W/nut

Beam to frog
5/8" hex head
1 @ 2 1/2" W/nut
Square head
1 @ 2 1/2" W/nut (fits against top of land side)
1 @ 2" W/nut (fits through square hole in land side)

Shane,
FYI, the Plow Chief can also have a replaceable shin...mine does, and I've seen them both ways, with or without the replaceable shin.

Yes Peter, the Plow Chief has the replaceable shin too, that's my mistake. Thanks for the correction.

Great work there. Is that Ford Engine Blue? It looks pretty close and I do like the blue on the attachments. (Getting ideas here)

Nah, it's not leaking oil. It's just marking it's territory.

I think you will find one is steel and the other cast iron.

Jim,
Back in 2006 when you were helping me get my Plow Chief straightened out, you gave me these P/N;

For the plow point, the part numbers are as follows;
#515638R1 - Cast Iron
#515640R51 - Steel
#519258R11 - Hard-faced Steel

For the plow share;
#515714R1

Shane,
See if you can find a P/N on the points.

Shane, I appreciate the parts list. I wanted to make sure I have all the hardware before I take it apart. Didn’t want to take apart and then run into looking for something and delaying the process. Gonna need it to plow when things dry up around here. Thanks!!!!

I can only read one of the numbers on these 2 points and it's the one with the special bolt 515640R2 here they are with the 2 news ones I just received from Agri-Supply.

Shane,
I found that I needed to grind out the inside corner on the AgriSupply point for it to fit correctly with the share.
