Default Brinly 10" plow - restored

I bought a Brinly plow a few weeks ago. I have been cleaning it up and replacing the hardware, in order to bring it back to it's former glory.
Here are a few before and after pictures. Don't let the paint in the before pictures fool you, it was just hiding a bunch of rust.

With the amount of rust and pitting that it had on it, I'm guessing that it would be old enough to be white originally. The black that was painted on it when I got it, was definitely not the original paint.
I wish I had a way to date it, but I could not find any markings at all.

Very good job! As usual--your work is super!
Did you just use new Gr-8 hardware where the bow is bolted together?

I have an old one also--one day--I'll get to mine...

I just went to TSC and picked up some zinc coated grade 5 hardware. The original bolts were not even marked, so I'm guessing that G-5's are overkill. I had to re-use the special bolts that attach the mold board. Everything else was replaced. Also, thanks to Daniel (olcowhand), who made the decals.
You can get a better look with this larger pic

Nice paint job.
If you have the decal with the serial number it will give the year. I am guessing that your plow is at least a 1972 because the main beam is welded
together. I just bought one 2 weeks ago that has a serial # B72-28545. I asked Brinly about serial numbers a couple of years ago and was told that the 2 numbers following the letter was the year.

That's strange--because the one I have out back is made with a little spacer in between the two side beams....
I bought the coalter wheel and support arm from a member on here last year--just haven't gotten around to the restore yet...

Glenn,
Is your main beam bolted together or is it welded? Tweidmans is welded at the spacers for the coulter and at the brackets for the adjuster. Mine is made the same way.

Dave

I believe mine is not welded--I'll dig it out and take a picture today....

Yea, I knew you could date it with serial number tag/sticker, but this plow had no sticker when I bought it. I'm guessing that it is a similar vintage as the tractor, which is nice.

I believe mine is not welded--just the spacers--I'll dig it out from under the wagon and post a picture this evening...
