Burger, I would like to push some of my advice on you. The reason I value my own opinion, is I have plowed thousands of acres and fixed up a dozen old plows to be field worthy.
Your plow is in really good shape, not worn much at all, but it is not 'scouring'. All plows that sit for thirty years or more outside will get rusty and the dirt will not flow along the moldboard and flop over. I take a fine grit flapper wheel and shine my shears and moldboards up before I go to the field. My soil is partly sandy so it shines up the plow even better, but when I take my old tractor and old plow to a new area to plow different soil I have learned that I better have my moldboards shiny before I start. After you're done plowing and the moldboard is shiny, you can put oil on it or better yet grease to preserve it for next year.
Also, it seems like your whole bottom is rolled around towards the front too much. Could the frog be bolted in the wrong holes on the bottom end of the beam.
I like the tractors.

Appreciate the help Mac. Never plowed before. Figured we had a plow...so let's try. Brother has this other Cub too plus this 57 Ford. Had great time learning. Sickle mower next. Welcome your help and guidance.

That is the first 57 Ford I have seen with a backhoe setup. was this a factory unit? Need a ladder to get up to the backhoe seat.

I got invited to help seed a small field about 45 miles north of here. Yesterday I loaded up an AR John Deere and a Massey-Harris seed drill.

Here's some pictures of the seeding operation.
