Question New Old sno way plow

Hi,
I am new to this sno way plow stuff. I had an older fisher on an old ford that finally went to the great junk yard in the sky. I dont usually invest to much in plows i have a long private right of way that is not well maintained so i usually buy good running trucks with working plows that are not road worthy to do the job. I thought way back when i would be able to put this old plow from the ford on a 97 ram 1500 i bought. However after being informed it was not going to happen in this life time i set out to find a new plow. I was origianally looking at used fisher minute mounts however i found this snow way plow in good working condition for just 250 dollars on ebay. ( i know its ebay but it works and its fine) The problem i have now is finding the mounts to mount it on my 97 dodge Ram 1500 short bed. I have looked at the specs for the newer mounts snoway has but they look different. any suggestions. I will try and post a link to a picture of the plow so thoes of you who can look and figure out the model might have a better idea. The plow at the moment is still in NY i will be picking it up on tuesday.

Looks like the old three pin mount. You are also missing the light tower and lights. I think you can still get the old subframe and nose piece from snoway. Maybe not. someone on here will tell you.

Thanks,
Somone is listing one one EBAY for about 600.00 plus shipping. I would atleast like to know if thats a resonable price if no one else has one. The guy i bought this off had it working and demo'd it for me so i know its a good system that works. He originally had it on a ram 1500 also however he changed it over to a chevy a few years back and didnt have the frame mounts

i am not to worried about the lights at the moment. The truck i am putting it on is ultimately not going to be registered. I just use it to plow myself out of my road. I live on a private road with three houses out here. we all keep the road plowed and sanded. I will worry about lights after i get the ploiw up and running snow is comming.

$600 is about what your going to pay from a dealer. if the seller knows the availablity he probably won't change his price.

Here is the parts manual

the Fenner Repair manual

My technical references page

the mount for your Dodge

http://www.snoway.com/service/Subframes/97100739b.pdf

this mount also works. It's not as nice a fit but if you can not find the 0465 one of these would work, There could be a couple of these still out there also. They require the 99103002 which I do have in stock

Basher did you say you could locate the mounts for me? The one i thought i was going to get is now no longer on ebay. I guess the you snooze you loose thing applies. I was waiting untill i actually had the plow in hand before i bought it.

Thanks
Dennis

That mount is no where to be had. Watch ebay and the site for a used one is you best bet.
