The original subject was "Re: adjusting 2 row cultivator".
Leroy is on the right track. I adjusting a model 13-1 right now. Spring shanks and 9" sweeps. Occasionally (always) some of the spring shanks get bent a little and on a rare occasion (always) one gets broken and is welded and the sweeps don't seem to point the right way. Raise the cultivator and look at it from the side and line up the springs, you will be able to see which are bent. Make note of it. To get the sweeps to line up at the proper angle you can do one of two things:
1. Park the tractor and cultivator on level ground. Level the frame. Look at the cultivator from behind and see which sweeps are out of kilter from the rest. Loosen those sweeps and insert flat washers between the sweep and the spring using the top bolt. That will kick the angle of the sweep down. When enough washers are inserted and all sweeps are at the same angle, lower the cultivator to just off the ground and adjust all springs so the sweeps are the same height off the ground. You should be done.
2. If most of the springs are bent you can kick all the sweeps down by raising the back of the cultivator using the top link as you have it now. Lower the cultivator till the front is just touching the ground. Now lower the rear spring height adjustment (top) till the rear sweeps are just touching the ground. You may have to raise the front springs to get them all even. The frame will now be tilted forward and the sweeps downward and the sweeps will all be level.
Hope this helps.
