HiYa Earl-
Plowing is basically the same all around but it matters which plow make and model you have as each was setup slightly different. Plow design and parts are all the same. Plows were made as 10", 12", and 14" 2-Bottoms with a 16" single bottom option. It is the cross shafts that changed so settings also changed. Look in the MANUALS forum here to determine which make and model you have. The early 9N had the Ferguson-Sherman Plows the cross shaft was similar to an engine crank shaft being offset a tad. With the Dearborn Moldboard Plows, the cross shaft was changed to a solid straight bar and settings were now different. The later Dearborn and FORD ECONOMY PLOWS changed the cross shaft yet again to an "L" bar, thus different adjustments were required as well. The MANUALS forum has instruction books on early Ferguson-Sherman plows and the 8N Operator's Manuals have chapters on plowing. Here are some scans from those manuals. Just a helpful hint: You don't need coulters and jointers to plow with but you do need the Rolling Landside, or Furrow Wheel. This should get you started.
