I presume you are going to take that down to two. The boards look in good shape and I`ll bet the whole outfit is in reasonable nick. Is it an RSLM major? It appears to have cranked legs and no drop down mouldboard stays.
Have fun as I am sure you will.

@arcobob Front two boards are ok, back one shot! Yes will be making it into a two. It is a no15 the last in the line of rsld/m, the frogs are bolted to the legs as per Motrac/midtrac with a slotted top hole and pitch adjusters. The first bodies that will be going on to it are a set of agt’s that I want to have a play with then might have a play with the frdcp’s on It. Been looking for one for a while so that I could swap bodies about

Just torn between putting some 69BK’s on skifes or leaving them on frogs and fitting legs off a 15. Then whether or not to change the legs and disc shanks rather than set 2 ploughs up - one for YL’s, one for RND’s. Decisions decisions!

just send the 69’s to me that makes your decision easier!

Got frogs for YL’s as well so number 15 legs looks the better option. Definitely a better option than sending a pair of 69’s northover!:D

either way will do, and your cousin will tell you, its easier to adjust the pitch with the leg type, than the frog type, or rather it is easier to set them were you want them, if using frog on legs David, then try to get an adjuster mounted from the beam to the landslide for more accurate adjustment, than the original screw tight to th back of the leg

Don’t often get a day to play in the middle of harvest, but 3 became 2 today. Leg bolts were rather tight to get out the beam, got the width adjusting nuts all freed off as well, just an extension to make for the rear wheel and shaft for land wheel an that will just leave the legs to strip down an fit with the new bodies.

Rather unusual wheels though there seem to be many variations. My father had a 1934 water washer with a set of irons and rubbers but both sets had the same spoked pattern rears. It was a temperamental old cow.
The fronts are Dunlop’s, I haven’t found any markings in the rear ones yet or seen another set like them. Only had it running a couple of times but any time I saw it at a match it ran pretty well

As you have the plough stripped so far, remove the furrow beam and check it has not pulled down in the front leg fixing area, they are prone to this, and it makes any attempt at pitch adjustment pointless, we had the one in Don Williams high cut plough( now looking for a new owner) pressed straight by a local steam engine restorer.
