Western Plow Lift question

    Hi all,
    Yep, I'm a newbie to the site and hoping I can find here what I was unsuccessful finding through google. I have done extensive searching over the last couple of weeks and found nothing. Okay so here's my problem.

    First off, I bought this second hand Western Plow from I guy I know. He used it for sometime and upgraded. Problem is, when he removed it from the truck he had it on (Ford) he butchered all the mounting hardware. So I'm attempting to reassemble it replacing where needed and repairing what is salvageable.

    I know enough about snow plows to be dangerous. But have successfully managed to build a snow plow mount. That being the part that the blade mounts to. Pretty successful at that, at least.

    My problem is the part that the lift pump and lights mount to. I have no idea on the measurements for the height or width of any of that. Although I do have what is left of it. But something is missing. :confused:

    So you have a better understanding of what I've done so far, when I made the part that goes to the frame of the truck, I mounted two hitch receivers between the frame rails, so I could remove the pump and lights from the truck separate from the plow.

    Does anyone know where I can find plans or something to get this project to an end?
    Many thanks.
