    I'm new to this site. Posted in a few places last night. Briefly: I bought used Fisher push plates for a MM. I first went to a local dealer who copied a diagram for me showing part # 7126. Diagram match the used parts so I bought them. Got the truck up on a lift, dropped the bumper and sway bar, and they don't seem to fit right. Fisher tech said I need different plates #7126-B. Tried to order the part, approx 570.00 and NAPA / Fisher dealer later said he couldn't order the B plates. I started reading on this site and others and see that 7126B seems to have replaced 7126, but I see no difference in the diagrams. So, what is the difference and why is it so hard to get answers regarding Broncos and Fisher??
    I need to deide soon if I am returning these plates or cutting and welding. Thanks, John

    Bronco push plate troubles

    Update: I gave up. Before I started getting too frustrated with it all, I returned the push plates and cancelled the deal on the plow. There was no way I was going to have any confidence in the sloppy manner in which these thing fit. Thanks any ways, I will either try a different brand of plow or get a separate plow truck. - John
