Push plate compatibility question

    Just moved to Maine and bought a house with a 215' long driveway. I have a 95 Chevy 1/2 ton (K1500) 4X4 extended cab with the 4.3Z engine. I think I have a lead on a "starter" plow (cheap). It is an OLD Fisher 7.5'. Checked to make sure it is solid and not rusted through, etc. I believe I am correct in assuming that 1988-2000 Chevy/GMC 1/2 ton frames are all the same with respect to this application. I also believe I am correct in assuming that I CANNOT use minute mount push plates since this is not a minute mount plow. Can someone please confirm or deny this and possibly put me on the right track to finding the correct push plates?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I'd call the local fisher dealer, they can give you definate answers. W A Messers is the one in Portland

    Is this old Fisher unit just the plow, or does it come with headgear, pump, pushplates, pushbeam, etc.? I think you'd be better off finding a complete system than trying to piece one together. Have you checked Uncle Henry's and Craigslist (ME & NH)?
