Re: My jd 317 and the big plans for it
Looks like some pretty good fabbing! I'm wondering about the geometry of your plows though from looking at the pictures. They are flat on the ground, but when plowing, they'll be much deeper. I'm thinking your back plow will be deeper than the front by several inches. Also, they seem a little agressively angled in relation to the rear axle of the tractor, should they be opened up a little? I'm in no way qualified to critique your build having never plowed with a moldboard plow, but just comparing them to others I've seen. Again, this is just an uneducated observation, hopefully you or someone else can tell me if I'm right or just an idiot. Feel free to be blunt, I have thick skin.
