New Blade Plow Leveling Guide

Roger Kuntz, K-Tech, 5251 County Road X, Grainfield, Kansas 67737 ph 785 673-5560: "My new blade plow leveling guide contains instructions designed to help farmers solve some technical problems with blade plows. I started working for Flex King in 1972 and served in research and development and as the head of the service department. Over the years I traveled from Canada to Australia, making sure farmers and dealers were getting optimum performance and satisfaction from their machines. I found the weak spots and, after enough time and struggle, improved on the key component û the turnbuckle. I took it up from a strength of 1-in. thread size to 1 1/2-in. and also incorporated both left and right hand threads, which allows "on plow" adjustment.
  "Finally, I realized farmers would appreciate having a simple guide for annual tune-up of these machines. Adjustment is quite simple. The depth control cylinder is located in the center of the machine, and depth control is delivered through rockshafts that have bearing wear which allows the wings to sag. The turnbuckle takes up the wear and keeps all the plow's sections operating at an even depth in the ground.
  "I've invented a æbearing width extension kit' that updates your machine and eliminates this problem. There's no reason you can't keep these machines running indefinitely. The blade plow leveling guide is available free to anyone who writes in, and contains information on various components in my upgrade kit."
