Cheers @gone, I’d say I’ll just make an order now for delivery I don’t want to see wexico again for a while. Jesus I’m rightly sickend now, we headed back through bunclody and I text a girl I was in college with from there wondering where to go and she said Jimmy’s is the best nearby and when we passed then the workman with me insisted he wanted a Chinese so back up to Carlow town we headed then and got food out of a Italian/ Chinese cross

If you are still use 3 hole discs, I can stick them in the post to you, they are no use to me anymore.

Kv pg100 the bodies are inclined to jump off the 4 balls far too easily when met with stones, they’re not worn and the springs is tensioned to 70cm works alongside a Es 85 which never has the same bother any ideas?

Does it have the 2 guides fitted.

The outside guide is No.64 called a "steering plate beam" ??????

On older KVs there was also an inner guide U bolt made of 30mm x 10mm plate bent into a C with threaded bar to bolt it on.

Wonder could she do with a extra leaf in the spring and what @gone pointed out that plate makes all the world of a difference

Is it one particular body . The springs while the right length could be weak . Is it either the front body or the one in line with the wheel of the tractor. Try a complete new spring or swap one from the other plough to see if it improves.

It has the guide plates on the side a couple of them been bent or broken when the bodies came off it’s not the same ones it’s happened to nearly all of them at this stage at least once, except the front one

Does it have the holes to fit the inner ones, or is it one of the later ones like my pic with the inner plate as part of the plough?
