Go to Tractor Supply or whatever local farm dealer and buy a small section of baler belt, cut it to the needed size, small steel backing plate and bolt it on. You'll need to take the chute off and it's good to have a drill it extension.
It's not hard to do.

Dunno if it helps, but there are kits from MTD for both the impellor and auger apparently

I don't know about your specific machine but you will need to buy 2 paddle kits due to 3 blade impeller. I have no idea if this kit would work at all but the paddle parts might be easy to buy this way and less running around looking for mud flaps, old tires, conveyor belts, etc.

If you have the Murray built Craftsman with an all metal auger/impeller bucket, it's very easy to install the paddles. If your model is an MTD build, with the plastic chute/impeller insert, it can be a little more difficult to get a good fit. See this discussion for potential issues to mod with this design.

MTD design with polymer insert:

I use the baler belt from Tractor Supply and drill pilot holes for self tapping screws with washers.
Here's one on a Murray built Craftsman 11hp, 30".

Thses things are pretty easy to make from baler belting, a truck mudflap or on Ebay for pre-made kits. SNOW BLOWER IMPELLER KIT?- 1/4" 3-Blade Universal- Modifies 2-Stage Machine | eBay

Make sure you wear gloves while drilling holes thru the chute opening so when you slip, (YOU WILL SLIP) your knuckles don't take the abuse.

Work fascinates me.
