Skid shoes

I need to replace the skid shoes on my Craftsman 8.5. How do I find the part number for them? I see several on the Sears website.

Thanks

They don't look like the originals but I guess if the holes line up they would do the job.

they are "universal" and will slide much better and last a lot longer

If you are on a bit of a budjet you could go down to your local welding shop and get a piece of flat bar welded on to build skid up. I did this on my first blower and they lasted 18 years. But I now use Armor skids like a lot better.
