    What you have is a old western conventional mount. The mount looks to be missing some pieces.

    It was at one time the right parts but now its just a collection of scrap metal. It would take a great deal of work and money to turn it back in to a working plow and them it would only be applicable to older (pre 1994) trucks.

    i know what iam going to do with it its a good working plow i use it last winter my buddy had it, scrap metal put togther is no diff from what you got from the factory as long as you know what you are doing and put metal in the right spot, lol i wasnt asking if it worked i know it works and works good i was asking if anyone knew what parts these all were for sure, and i do fab work on the side i build a mount from nothing for my 88 ford, and it doesnt cost much money to do, so ya i ask if anyone knew what they were for sure, so i dont need your advice on saying its scrap metal lol thanks

    Then after all your hard work it won't be scrap metal anymore. If you go to the western websites publications section they have parts manuals listed for the old conventionals if you really want to find the part numbers.
