Help Identifying Plow and mount

    Hello, I have recently gotten a western unimount 7'6" snow plow. I originally got the plow on a trade, and bought the truck mount after. I believe it is a western unimount pro from my research as it has 7 ribs and 3 springs. I have a long driveway and my tractor just takes too long. I have a 2000 chevy 2500hd with the 6.0. I have been looking at different setups, and I believe that my parts don't match up. If anyone could help identify my problem it would be a big help. I have searched the internet and found this site, and if anyone will know, it will be you guys. The plow was mounted on a mid 90's 1 ton chevy, and was cut off. I can't figure out how everything goes together. It seems to me that the part that holds the light and lifts the plow is mismatched and won't mount to the plow or the truck. I don't know what the technical term for that part is. The nearest dealer is an hour away, so hopefully someone will have some insight. Thank you in advance.

    Would it be a better bet to sell what I have and buy a complete unit ? Can you tell if the unimount for the truck is correct for a 2000 chevy 2500hd ?

    That's a Western Franken-plow of some sort. It's old school head gear integrated into a Unimount or something. Kind of hard to tell what was done from that view.
