I suppose I should have started this back when I began restoring this plow but better late than never right? It's pretty much completed now except for the decals that I am still looking for... so technically it's still a work in progress. 

 

Anyhow, I picked up the HD-42 plow with an RJ mount back in mid January with great help from @OILUJ52

 

Here's what I started with:

It had all the essential parts; blade, front channel, rj mount, lift bar, and foot pedal (no chain, though). The only things missing were the 2 skids. Everything was in decent condition with some light to mild pitting vertically along the left edge of the blade face. The "front channel", as it's termed in the parts list, came mounted on an A-frame with 4 bolts, and the piece that attaches to the lift bar had been removed from it to accommodate the A-frame setup. All easy fixes! 

 

First things first, I made a new piece for the lift bar to attach to on the front channel, welded that on, and welded the 4 bolt holes up on both sides.

Next, I made up some skids.

I didn't snap a picture of the pitting on the left edge of the blade but I ran side by side beads the entire height of the blade about 2 inches wide - must have blown through 10 rods to do it. I filled in any other digs and gouges with welds. Being a plow, I didn't want body filler anywhere close to the blade. I did, however, use a small amount to fill in a couple of scratches on the topside of the front channel. 

 

I made one modification that was not original. There are 2 pieces of angle iron that are bent to fit the curvature of the blade and mounted to the backside of the blade on each outside edge. These were originally plug welded to the blade leaving a gap between the 2 on the outside edge - a perfect place for water to get trapped and promote corrosion. So I welded those up on both sides. It makes the edges look much better too!

 

And I just realized that I didn't snap any pics of everything down to bare metal or after body work either. But, here's everything after all my fixes and shot with a second coat of primer.

I'm having some trouble attaching the after paint pics. Will post when I figure it out.

Here's some pics after paint (PPG AUE300 in IH50), color sanding, and buffing.

I'll snap a few pics of it mounted on my RJ when I find the time.

Thanks Ed, I'll have to do that in the near future.

If we get another snowless winter like this one Jay,  We may as well put all our snow machines in the museum.

      So i really dont want to let her go but its time, 1966 1076 mod# t-1076 ser#214242 runs really good, charging system is good, its a k341 motor, hydro pulls good,  sleeve hitch
       
      For the asking price will come with one bottom plow, mid mount cultivator, rear cultivator, push blade, rear blade , few sets of cultivator teeth.  PS: The planter may be spoken for already I am waiting to hear back on it. 
       
      Thanks for looking.

      Still a little chilly, but a good day to plow!

      Previously had this listed with a wagon. Sold the wagon and dropped the price. 
      1984 Wheel Horse C-195 black hood edition
      19.5 hp twin Kohler engine
      3 point hitch (NO rear PTO)
      60" heavy plow
      51" mower deck (That's without the guide chute attached; not sure if that's considered 60". )
      36" Snow thrower
      original owners manual
      Wheel weights (Tires are also filled, gel I think)
      Chains on front tires and parts for chains on the rear (rear chains in picture are not available)
      An assortment of other part, including heavy bar for the snow thrower, a pull chair, spare oil filter, etc.
       
      The tractor starts and runs well. It has some cosmetic issues but not what I would call damage. It's big, powerful, and a lot of fun. 
       
      It starts, but the current battery is undersized, so while it starts fine in the summer, I've been using my truck to jump it in the winter. The easy solution is battery with more cold cranking Amps.
      The mower deck has been redone with some welding (heavy duty steel) where it rusted through. The center guide wheel it missing.
      The snow thrower works, but is currently missing a link on the chain, and the sprockets are worn.

      I prefer to sell everything as a set, if possible Please email me if you're interested with "C-195" in the subject line. I live in Upstate NY along the PA line.
