Will a 48" plow from a 320 fit my 316 Kohler?

I have a line on a 48" plow blade for my 316k. The seller says it is from his 320 and it should fit 200, 300 and 400 series. I know the front mount on my 1978 316 Kohler is the same all the way up to the 318, but I wanted to confirm about the 320 as it seems newer.

The 48" blade from a 320 (vintage early 90s) will not fit a 316 Kohler, nor will it fit any traditional 300 or 400 series tractors. It will fit the 320, 325, 335, 345, 240, 245, 260, 265, and 285.
Bummer. Would it be very difficult to adapt? Maybe a different bracket? The price is $150 for a near new plow with dual hydraulics.
The easiest would be to find a front hitch for your tractor and modify it to adapt the 48" blade to it. The problem is finding the front hitch by itself. Otherwise, if you can fab your own setup, which would require designing, cutting, drilling, and welding. The thing that makes me wonder what the blade actually fits, is the "dual hydraulics". The 48" blade for the 320 had no hydraulics.
Well, I have a beat up model 49 snowblower that came with my 316. I could maybe fab something up from the brackets on that.

The lack of hydraulics worries me, along with the fact that this guy said it would fit my tractor I don't think this guy knows what he has, or it's a scam.
