Sears 42" Plow
Posted October 11, 2012 - 06:52 PM
42" Wide X 17" Tall - Fully Adjustable Blade
Blade can be fully adjusted while pushing snow or gravel with raise and lower lever, as well as right and left angle adjustments.
I found no manual using this number but one comes up using a 917 prefix. Probably the same thing but not sure. The one in that manual shows a sleeve on top that slides onto the Sears frame but it is missing on my plow. I will probably have to fabricate one. (meaning have one made)
The man had used it on a Cub Cadet. He said he had drilled 2 holes on the front of the tractor in order to mount it.

First, pics of how yours goes together. (And yes, it seems the 917 vs. the 402 is the same plow. 402 would've been who made it at that time... don't know who that is.)
It seems the major part you're missing is part #30 in the above pic.
Here is a cover of a manual I found.
It seems to prove that the 402 & 917 are the same critter.
Now, I took the pics and some measurements of the piece that is on mine that would be the same as combining parts #'d 30 & 20. They are added as attachments below.
I think I would study the Sears exploded view and stare at my mule drive for a while. then copy the mule drive for the part that slides into the frame & fab the piece that bolts to the plow from there.
Hope this helps some. I have an older plow in the attic of the garage. If i can get to it this wknd, I'll look at it & see if it's like yours or like mine.

It's much closer to yours.
I will make it a point to get up there and climb back to it Saturday nite or Sunday afternoon. Anything specific measurement wise? I will plan on taking a camera, tape measure, flashlight, and some paper & pen.

I think I'm going to turn him loose with his paper and "Sketchup" to see if he can make something that makes a little more sense.
Anyways, If the pics don't answer a question... PLEASE let me know.

The rod (28) is 5/8" diameter BTW.

Got to noodling over the differences between these two plows. When you build yours, you will want the slot pin style retainers like on the first one, not the bolts with nuts like on the second.
I'm referring to the side of the bracket that slides in. The bolts with nuts and holes are for the Bradley frame, which is open on the sides and you can get to the nuts, on the suburban frame, you can't. Using your mule drive as a pattern should work.
