Need help with craftsman snowblower

So I got a great deal ($150.00) on a 2002 craftsman lawn tractor.

Model # 917. 271760

The sticker under the hood calls for the snowblower model# 24839.

I found a sears PDF compatibility list that shows the tractor using snowblower model# 24837

I have the opportunity to buy a model# 24838 snowblower used for $100.00. My question, is will the blower# 24838 fit on my tractor. Will I just need new mounting brackets? If so does sears sell said mounting brackets?

Any help you all can give me is greatly appreciated.

I had no idea that these snowblowers would be so convoluted...

Thanks!

There is the owners manual for the blower you are looking at. Compare the mounting instructions to what you have on your mower.

Hughdahand.

I would if I could. I forgot to mention I'm trying to do this while I'm in the middle of the Indian Ocean floating around on a ship LOL.

My wife is sending me pictures, but that only gets me so far.

Also. I grew up in Swartz Creek. What are the odds of all of the internet, I would have someone from Creek reply to my question? Crazy!

I already downloaded both the 24838 and 24839 manuals. They look similar. There seems to be one extra belt with the 24838, and the mounting brackets look slightly different.

I'm just wondering if they're close enough to make it work.

Thank you
