    Hello maybe someone can help me. I just bought a used Fisher 8' snow plow. It is an older Speed Cast. I don't know that much about fishers but I am assuming that this is what is called a conventional plow. Anyway, it is a used plow and the previous owner cut the push plates off when he removed it. It doesn't look like it would have fit my 1990 k1500 any how. I have the head gear and measured the push beam. The push beam measured 26 7/8 inches overall length. I don't know if they are all the same length or not but this is the length that was listed on Fishers web site. I need to find a set of Push plates. If anyone has a set that they would like to sell I would be interested if reasonable. The truck is a 1990 chevy 1500. Otherwise I will continue to search ebay and such. I don't know if these push plates are still available or not. The fisher part numbers are 8867 and 8868 If anybody has a source of even new ones I would appreciate them pointing me in the right direction.

    You're in trouble. If you buy the 1/2 ton push plates 8867 & 8867 you will find that your push beam is not a part# 1510. the 1510 or 1/2 ton push beam was made for only a 7-1/2' blade (measures 22-1/2" accross the ears of the aframe that hook to the truck) the 8' blade's a-frame is made to fit the part# 1513 push beam and the ears are at 25-1/2". This was done to stop people from overloading their vehicle by putting an 8' or 9' plow on a half ton truck.

    What if....

    I have the push beam that fits the plow. It measures 26 7/8-27" across. I looked at fishers website and the push beam the it shows fitting the 8867 and 8868 plates is the 1510 push beam. which is listed iwht a overall length of 26 7/8. If I can find some pushplates will this pushbeam work. I am new to fisher. I just sold my 8' Western plow truck and picked up this used Fisher and would like to put it on my 1990 K1500. I don't do any commercial plowing and would only be doing my own properties. I see quite a few people around here with the classic body style halftons running 8.2 boss v-plows and 7.6 boss superdutys. This fisher should be in that same weight class. If I could make this thing fit, I was going to add a set of timbrens and turn up the torsion bars. If I could find a set of heavy duty torsion bars I would probably add them.

    Is the 1513 bar and the 1510 bar the same except for the mounting ears to accept the plow A-frame???

    STILL LOOKING FOR A SET OF USED PUSH PLATES.......1990 CHEVY CONVENTIONAL PLOW

    OH Man.....

    Well, I dropped the ball again. It turns out my truck is a K2500 not a K1500. It has 6 lugs, I thought it was a half ton. It turns out it is a light duty 3/4 ton. I don't know what the differnce is buy my pushbeam is a 1513 for a 3/4ton so things are looking better. I still need a set of pushplates. Are these the same on the heavy 8lug 3/4ton or are they different and if they are the same Is a one ton mount also the same.
