Dozer/Snow Plow -- Sears Model No.: 402.251380
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.

Yes, you're missing the top piece that slides back into the frame. I have an almost identical unit if you want me to grab some measurements tomorrow nite.

I have taken a few pics and done a little research. IDK how much help my plow will be, it's different in some substantial ways.

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.
402-251380 plow.JPG
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.

Yes, part # 30 is what is missing. If you look at the bottom pic that I posted yesterday, It looks as if the part that is like the sleeve on the mule drive has been cut off. I think that perhaps part #30 was thrown out and that other part was made so they could bolt it to the Cub Cadet. Your measurements will help, and gives me some ideas.

Found a picture of the one in the attic.
http://gardentractor...attach_id=37379
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.

Yes, first, the length of part 30, if it is a different length than what you have already shown. Second, the length of the lower arms that connect #20 to the lower holes in the axle. Third, the length of the upper arm that is on the upper part of part #20 that goes to one of the upper axle holes, holding part 30 from sliding off the tractor. This one looks like it might be part # 28 in the blow apart diagram and the lower ones are really hard to read. I hope this is clear

OK, I got some pics just as it was turning dark. Then Ryan took a bunch of measurements and wrote them in code on a piece of paper with a picture of something that looks kinda like number 30.

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.

BTW, I took the lower rod (28) off and am taking it home so I can get better measurements.

That is a LOT of info, much more than I would have expected. I need to get out and measure the mule drive from the mower. I am betting that it is long enough, that I could cut it off square and weld to the yoke. That would give me the piece I need. Actually, if I measure the lower rods (28) and the upper one, I could figure just where I would need to cut the front of the mule drive off square. I am only thinking of doing this as a replacement mule drive is readily available on ebay. Getting one and having it welded to the yoke might be cheaper than having the welding shop fabricate the whole piece.
Thank you for going the extra mile!

No problem, you're very welcome.

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

I take the statement back about finding one on ebay: They certainly aren't cheap on ebay tonight. LOL

Robert,
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.

Dad and I went over the measurements tonight. He asked me to do a sketchup of the bracket.

You can find it HERE.

That sketchup is perfect. I printed it out. It was so much nicer than the drawing I tried to hen scratch on a piece of paper.
Thank You
