Toro 1132 mods

This machine is in good shape. Solid runner. So today I did the impeller mod to it.
Materials:
I used a truck mudflap from NAPA $12
6x 1/4 20 nuts, bolts and lock washers bolts were 3/4" long
First I removed ign wire, then take off two of three plastic Shute retainers. Then loosen the 9/16" nut under the worm screw. The Shute then lifts off

Next I blocked the impeller,center punched 2 holes and drilled them using a 5/16" bit. These impellers are tough to get thru

On to the mudflap. I cut 3 strips 2"x6" and drilled the mounting holes

Bolted thru, 2 bolts per impeller. The rubber is about 11/32" thick and rugged. I could have used self tapping screws but I like the bolts better

Made up some drift cutters tonight too. 2"x24" flat stock. Drilled 5/16" holes in the drill press to match the side plates. Cleaned up the burrs on the grinder. Painted and drying in the shed now. I'll bolt them up tomm and get some pics. I need them now the drifts are getting high. Toro does make a Shute extension, a bit pricey at $95 but I think it's next

Nice job. That's a nice tutorial style post. When I did my kit I also used a truck mudflap because I found one laying in the middle of Main Street one day, so I hopped out to get for exactly this purpose. I used self tapping screws. The metal of the impeller is thick enough that I can't imagine them ever backing out. The benefits of the bolts is probably that you get a bigger mounting surface against the rubber, making any sort of tear around the hardware less likely.

The closer the rubber is to scraping the impeller housing the more improvement you will get. Looks like you didn't take up the gap to me. Slide em' out to the edge if you can

The meltdown is under way ...
