I've got a 1976 1614 and would like to start looking for a snow plow for it.

I'm unclear about what will actually fit this tractor. It sounds like there are several versions but not all will fit correctly. Can anyone guide me through how to identify the right blade assembly for a 1976 1614? I've seen several on CL but some listings state that they will only fit pre 1973 tractors and some only Jim Dandy but I don't know enough to be able to tell from the photos. Also if anyone has a photo that shows one mounted or all the attaching hardware that would be great.

Thanks,  Roger

This link explains things well regarding the plow that you need. The pics were a big help to me when I had the same question that you are asking.

In that thread it shows this picture. This is the plow that you need for your PK.

You're welcome. I just plowed with my PK for the first time after the last storm, and it does a great job. I was in a bit of a rush, so I didn't get any pics.

Here is a pic of the tabs/ mounting brackets on the frame for the 73 to 80 something plows. Also, here is a pic of the correct plow that I picked up for mine, but it has an adapter bracket assembly for mounting these plows on the pre 73 PK's. I just removed the adapter bracket assembly and mounted the plow on my PK. This adapter bracket assembly is original equipment.
Kris, I would have taken pics when I plowed, but I drained the gas from another machine and ended up with water in my fuel system. I had to completely drain the fuel systems in my PK and Allis Big Ten, plow 600 feet of driveway, then go clear the snow at my Mom's place. I finished up just as the sun went down. The PK did a great job, and I'll get some pics during the next storm. I didn't quite finish the PK before winter, but I'll be finishing it in the spring. At least I can use it to haul firewood and get the plowing done. We have some good weather this week, so I can make up some tire chains that I will surely need when deeper snow comes. The PK sure hauls a good load of oak, though!

That would be perfect! I just wish it was a little closer, 3 1/2 hours each way isn't going to happen this week.

This is what he needs.

 Even though it's a Jim Dandy in the picture, it's the same basic hookup.

 My son and a friend decided to take a road trip yesterday.

The chains look fine, the blade is a little rougher than I'd like but it should work fine although I'm not sure if the lift rod is correct. The mower deck is pretty rough but looks like it has the parts that are missing from my good deck shell. I'm not up to speed on PK parts but he ended up parting with $275 for this. I hope all the important pieces are here.

Tried mounting the plow this afternoon. The lift rod is home made and I've got it working but does anyone have a good photo and dimensions of the factory lift rod for a hydraulic lift? I ran out of light for today but still want to put a horse mat edge on it and see if the chains fit.

I thought the factory rod had some type of slide and spring gizmo to allow for a bit of "float". Will leaving the hydraulic valve in the float position be sufficient to avoid breaking or bending something in certain situations. On my old Cub Cadets I used to use chain instead of lift rods for the snow plows and that worked great.
