1978 Ariens chute enhancement?

I have a 1978 Ariens 924026. The machine is in great condition. I thought I read about someone that enhanced the chute controls to allow it to rotate more quickly. I cannot find the post or thread. If I remember correctly the person replaced the plate that the chute is on and the gear to one that rotated quickly.

Any thoughts.

The first series machines..1960 to 1964 had the gear drive chutes, and the 10000 series as well for the first few years. If you are going to that much work, welt the bottom gear to one of the taller chutes...some of the really tall chutes had the deflector cable operated as well.
