    Have an 86 F-250 diesel. Bought an old western conventional mount plow ( I know there not the greatest but it was at a steal). Problem I'm having is the plow came off an 86 ford F-250 that was Identical other than it was a gasser not a diesel. When I put this mount on my truck it is smashing the radiator hose and the steering arm is hitting so it affects the steering. Did western make a different mount for the diesel version? I haven't been able to find anything on the web about this and I don't see a real easy modification without changing the integrity of the mount. Any help? Thanks

    I would say yes they did. But going back to 1986 is gunna be difficult. Maybe call Western?
