    I have an old 1986 Chevy 3/4 Ton with a old Fisher Plow (not shure how old, but it has the Pump/motor mounted in the engine compartment). I was thinking about mounting this plow setup on a 2007 2500HD (Classic) because the plow is still in excellent shape. Does anyone know of a truck mount that is out there that will allow me to do this, or is this something that would have to be fabbed up? Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks Joe

    3 things to do.

    #1 = go get the correct newer stuff / setup for your truck.

    #2 = go get mm plates and wiring and head gear and pump then adapt blade to fit head gear.

    #3 = full on custom fab work to make mounts/pump mount to fit it someplace yada yada .

    sell it all and go get a good used mm setup and be done. and it will look better also.

    The hardest part is to fine a used minute mount hoop.

    Unless you have a good idea of what your doing this might may or maynot make since.

    The "classic" plow will fit into the minuet mount, and then the minute mount fits on the plow. Its pretty simple, just find a used minute mount hoop.

    Then find a truck side minute mount.

    And then you'll also need to purchase all the necessary truck side wiring for your '07...as well as convert the plow over to the newer style electrical system that you'll have to use on the '07...so be sure to add an additional approx $700 to your needed parts budget.

    Then you'll need a new A-frame because the drop stand on the MM head gear will get in the way. The only thing I used off an old Fisher Speedcast plow was the blade and nothing else.

    Unless your able to deal with the cable system.

    Also if you have above average electrical experience the headlights shouldn't be a problem.

    I was assuming it was classic aka conventional and not speedcast, how do you know? When I read his post it said "conventional"
