Brinly plow ?

Recommended Posts

Bunky
I'm getting ready to clean up and paint a Brinly plow for the Wards squire I'm working on and had a couple of questions.... 1) What have others used for painting the Molboard? 2) What do you do about a rusty "U" bolt for the Coulter???

for show or to work? If for work I don't think you want to paint the parts that get shiny with anything, old oil between seasons. If for show, then back to the original paint. -Don

Don is correct. You don't want to paint the scouring side of the moldboard or share if it's going to be used. There is a special paint you can get at most farm equipment dealers, but the moldboard needs to be shined up first. A wire brush, then either steel wool or fine (400 grit or finer) sandpaper does well. The paint is a soft, flat finish paint used mainly to prevent rust while the plow is not in use. It scours off easily when you start plowing. As to the rusted U-bolt, use penetrating oil or heat. If it's really rusted, cut or split the nuts to remove them. Wire brush and chase the threads.

on further reflection IF I was restoring a Brinly for show I'd shine the share and moldboard almost to a chrome shine (as Pat describes) and wax it. That shine is part of what made Deere's plow such a huge innovation in the mid 1800's and is highly prized by farmers to this day - if shiny it will work (scour), if rusty or even dull the soils will stick. A plow used a lot will keep shiny on its own. -Don

I went to the local Farm store today and I found some of the "plow Paint, I'm going to use that on the Molboard, and the adjusting handle and coulter clamp are pretty rusty I think I'm going to paint them just gloss black....

That is correct. Be sure to turn the die CW only 1/4 turn at a time then back off CCW to clean and keep from galling the old threads.

I just sandblasted and painted the U bolt and clamp, I tried to find a new locally but no one seems to have one that big, on the bottom it says 7/8 So I'm assuming it's 7/8" clamp but the handle and adjuster on the back was rusty and loosing it's coating so I just blasted and painted those too..

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
