OK...heres the deal...I picked up an old David Bradley plow this morning ($40)....I want to hook it to the back of one of my Ford LGTs......The question is, where should it sit in relation to the wheels so that the tires will run in the furrow?...To the left, to the right, in the center?...For reference, I am going to measure from the cutting wheel. In these pictures, it is just set behind the tractor to show what I am asking.

I'm guessing - the plow is designed to turn an 8" or 10" furrow, when the right wheels are in the dead furrow you want the plow to be the 8" or 10" to the left of the right tire.

Thanks....That is pretty much what I understood too.....It is a 6" plow, according to another guy....measuring across the bottom of the blade......Not sure if thats how to do it

I think I am going to mount it on a plate, so that I can move it back and forth sideways if I need to......
