Yes, it will fit but no it won't work.

The method of attaching front mounted implements has remained the same from 1971 to present day but the engines got turned the opposite way in the frames in 1989, thus reversing the direction of rotation.

You need the earlier model 84 snow blower. These began with a single letter such as H-84, J-84, K-84, L-84, etc right up to S-84.

Technically, you could modify the SB to work on your tractor but Tom is correct that you should just get the correct one. The SBs are not as plentiful as the older models and have more resale value so you may be able to buy the SB and make a few bucks in a trade. If you needed an SB but had the older style it would make sense to do the necessary modifications to turn it into an SB.

I think I'll pass on the PA SB48 for right now. If it were the correct one for my needs, I'd certainly be on my way to get it. I have alot of things to do on my tractor projects mechanically, and cosmetically to get them into shape. Thanks for all your input.
Regards,
Nolan

Im running a SB38 on an 86 and 77 Case tractor. I am able to do this because I have the "adapter" kit that allows the belt to work correctly. The dealer gave me a few mule drives, snowcaster drive shafts and some pulleys and said to try them out and see which setup would work. The unused parts were sold on ebay and they fetched a few hundred dollars since they were new.

This is not the best option for getting the newer SB models to work on the older tractors because it can be expensive but if someone is hell bent on wanting a shinny brand new snowcaster then they can make it work by using the correct mule drive. There is pics of my setup floating around here somewhere. If you cant find them then let me know. Hopefully I can create a photo album when I get some free time. Its been crazy over here lately.

I think that a fair price for a nice SB48 is $350, maybe $400. If you really need one and it is really nice, $500 is probably more like. I think that the price is more dependent on how much you really want it and how long you will wait.

I am looking for one for a 4016 in Michigan if anyone has one in the area.
