    Restoring JD walking plow

    I'm in the process of restoring a JD walking plow, can anyone help with the length of the wood handles. I have new handles but it looks like the right side handle is a different length than the left side. I do not have the old handles as a reference. Also need to know the size and length of the cross brace between the handles and correct location, Thanks

    Red, I will attempt to post a picture of one that I have. I received it with possibly the original handles and stretchers, rotten, but intact. I just copied what was on it. If this is anything like the one you have, I could sketch what is on this one and give dimensions. Can't guarantee accuracy. LOL
    Also, look closely, the are several models of these things. I have a picture of one similar, but only one stretcher and turns furrow to the right. Haven't found that photo yet.

    I don't know if the number on the beam is the model number. I'm not at all educated on them, just like 'em a lot! Heck, I don't even know the proper names of all the parts to one. Which part is the cross brace?

    great looking plow, that would be great if you could sketch out the handles and the two wooden cross dowels , I call then the cross braces. Not sure if that's really what they are called. The handles look very similar to what I think mine should be , least wise it will be close enough. Mine is a right hand , but I should be able to just flip the dimensions. I only have a bout 2' of each handle, rest is rotted and gone. I was supprised when I tried removing the bolts I thought they may not loosen , but nuts came right off. I'd appreciate any help. I have new handles but they need to be cut to length and I. Have no wooden cross dowels. I found where I can buy them but they come in different lengths also.
    Not sure either about the number on the beam, I'm told it's not the model number.

    Thanks for the pics!

    Mine is a #418 & is a right hand throw, but the handle setup probably wasn't very different, just reversed.

    We are getting another snowstorm here in Southern Ohio at the moment, but I should be able to do some measurements in the next day or so. There's a 3' pile of snow off the roof right in front of the green one now.
    I did this IHC plow to keep the green one company. Moldboard was worn thru on the red one, almost so on the green one. No telling how many times they were replaced in the past.

    Very nice, both of them. Is there a manufacturer name stamped on the red plow? I tried to buy an IHC at auction last summer but the Amish wouldn't stop bidding. I'll try to get a pic of the JD I'm going to work on.

    Red badger, it looks like we'll be in the "or so" time frame for dimensions. Here's what it looks like now.

    The red one does have IHC cast into the beam along with what looks like 7 digits. Rust has taken it's revenge, and only the last 3 numbers, 358, are readable now.
