||I have bought a 318 with old 48" deck which had a Power Flow, and still has the double pulley. I have 2 Power Flow blowers now, and it is not clear either will fit. I do not have the mounting brackets. The deck SN is H048L468444M. It has a front skid and rear wheels, unlike pictures I see of a 48" deck with a Power Flow with front and rear gauge wheels. One blower is PWRFLO48&54MOW SN M00PFCD312268 (which looks right from the JD online parts catalog) and the other is PWRFLO46MOW SN GXOPFCB300803. Will either fit?
||Ed - You must have the replacement 48" deck for your 318. The Power-Flow boot for the 48/54" decks should fit your deck. Not saying it will for sure, but I believe it will. The other Power-Flow boot for the 46" deck will not fit. - Dave
||It looks like the 48&54 blower might fit, but on holding it in place, it seems that it will hit the gauge wheel. I would assume the trailing wheel should still be used. Is it?
