I have an old C317H serial #103880 that Came with only snowblower. I would like to buy a mower deck. Would a 420 fit?

No the 420 is different you can us one from 120 140 300 312 314 316kohler and then if you change the mounting arms one from a 316 onan 318 330 322 332

The key to finding a deck for the hydro tractors that share thr same basic design is the pto belt from the engine drives the center blade and then power is passed off to the outer blades. As little Deere mentioned, there are mounting differences between the closed frame (older tractors like 120/140/300/312/314/316k/317) and the open frame machines (newer machines like the 316/318/322/330/332). They range in size from 38" cut (3 blade model 41 is most common) to 46"/48" cut (with various model numbers) and and a 50" cut (later model).

The 46/48 decks can get very confusing. If you find one a few pics would help us help you figure out if it will work.

Different belt length as well for a 317 versus a 314 for instance. The twins crank sits higher so the belt has to be longer.
