  • 10-153 Plow Jointer and Arm?
  • Greetings! I recently picked up a Dearborn 10-153 2-Bottom Plow with a pair of Coulters. One Coulter assy is missing the jointer and its arm, due to the arm having been broken at the forward mounting hole. Have you any suggestions on where to locate these parts? TIA

  • I have a pair of used coulters (no bracket or arm) that will likely fit.

  • Thanks for the reply. The coulters are the cutting discs, aren't they? I have those, but only one jointer and its support arm.

  • Yes, the coulters are round and intended to cut sod.

  • Yesterday, locally I located a pair of disassembled coulters with the jointer arms and jointers that were an exact match. Thanks for the help.

  • Misread post topic/body.

    I also have several sets of jointers and brackets and one or two styles of arm (they are not all the same).

  • Dearborn & Ford Tractors are no longer in business but some parts are still available. The coulters and jointers are not ones made any longer. The early Ferguson-Sherman and Dearborn Moldboard(Prior Model)Plows used the same jointer arms and I don't think there are any part numbers cast on them. Even if there were p/n's nobody makes new repops now so no way to reference. I will have to look when I get over to the farm next week. The early ones have a different hole spread than the later Dearborn Economy Plows of which your 153 is one and early won't interchange with later. Coulters and Jointers are not necessary order to plow with but look cool on a show tractor with plow setup. Early coulters also needed a check chain on the arm but the Economy Plows did not require the check chain due to the revamped coulter design. It matters what style coulter you have because plows were sold with coulters and jointers as options - they were never included with the plow -so some dealers sold older parts for their Economy Plows. Do you need the palm and Jointer blade too? Can you post or email me pictures and I can tell which style you need. Like I said I will be over at the farm next week so can check my inventory then, weather permitting. My email is open.

    DEARBORN MOLDBOARD (PRIOR MODEL) PLOW, USED 47-50:

    DEARBORN ECONOMY PLOW, USED 50-53*:

    *In ’53 Dearborn Motors was dissolved and then merged and became Ford Tractor & Implement Division. All models and parts were the same only now carried the FORD logo on the ID Tags.

    The good news for those wanting to restore a plow for use is that major wear parts like moldboards, shares, shins, and frogs are still available. PLOWORX™ has recently introduced the early Ferguson-Sherman and Dearborn Prior Model points.

  • Can you post the casting number on the one jointer you have?

  • Revised number after scotchbrite and more daylight... looks like A0 3803 A2. The A2 could be an upside down V. Dang trifocals.

  • Re: 10-153 Plow Jointer and Arm?
  • The only visible numbers are on the arm itself between the mounting bolts and they read 3303. Dang trifocals. Where could I look on the shoe or its mount?

  • I managed to locate a loose pair of jointers and mounting arms, same part number, A0 3803 A2 about 15 miles from home. I had seen them in a barn about 20 years ago, and the guy still had them and was happy to part with them and two disassembled coulters for $20.00 It looks like I'm set. Thanks for the replies for my request for assistance as always, this forum is the best!
