Now I did it the way MXZRXP did with the 2 pcs one shorter than the other..I dont understand the purpose of the short pc ?? Now the belting is mounted on the paddle facing you when it rotates out of the housing BUT the short pc is on top of the long pc so when the long pc comes into contact with the housing it is being pushed AWAY from the short pc so really the short pc is doing nothing..

Now if the short pc was UNDER the long pc it would then act as a stiffner...What am I missing here..And that JD blower paddle is like 1/4" thick !!!! Man it took forever drilling thru it

wow was (actually still am) down with the flu!

I staggered the two pieces so there was more flex, 1/4" reinforced rubber will not flex... This allows you to get a tighter fit, you will see what I mean when it rotates...

I used a 1" bolt but if your paddle is bent or bowed (most are) you might need a longer bolt, to get the threads started. (A long bolt provides no problems as it is on the side of th epaddle that does "nothing"

I went out today (40F here) and did a 10,000 sq.. ft. drive that was 100% slush, not a clog and a pretty good throw!
