Default 2 row corn planter

Just bought 2 ROW CORN PLANTER .
Has 2 metal seed bins and a fiberglass fertilizer bin .
Came with extra seed disks .
Its a Ford model . 309 I f I remember ??
Now I just need to figure out how to use it .
The guy alos has a older all metal pull 2 row ford corn planter .
All there , think he would take $100 or less .
Mines a 3 point set up got it for $125.

Sounds like a winner, I was gonna plant some early beans in one of my plots on the river bottom. That plot still has 4ft of water still on it from the flood. Looks like I'm looking at late beans now.

Your best bet is to get an operators manual. Ford 309 is an excellent planter. Some parts are still available from Ford/New Holland. I believe that some seed plates and such parts as seed knockers (the things that go click, click, click in the seed cans when the press wheels turn) and manuals are available. Plates are pricy, but used ones are often available on ebay.

Hasnt been used in a couple years .
I lubed up everything and got most of it turning and freed up /
Overal in very nice shape .
Only thing I see missing a the chain for the fertilizer dispenser and one of the seed bin lids .

I got the plates turning freely and clicking like there suppose to .
I just need to figure out what plate size I need .
Thanks for the input .

I've got a Dearborn 12-88 planter. It's the predecessor to the Ford 309. I got a manual for the 309. Here's a pic of the seed spacing page.
