Impeller Paddle Mod Question

I'm going to do the impeller rubber paddle mod on my Toro and I have a question. Do you guys just put the rubber on the straight part of the impeller or curve it all the way to the tip?

First let me say I'm sold on the impellor mod. I've read and watched nearly everything I can find and even talked a friend into doing it on his old Gilson that he repowered but still didn't work until he added some flaps to the impellor.

But, I'm still waiting to hear why the manufacturers don't do it.

It improves throw and will allow the machine to move slush, the Achilles heal of two stage machines AND AND AND is a potential consumable they could make money on down the line.

So what gives?

I would like to add that on my first installation of the impeller mod to my 10 HP Craftsman (1/2 gap) ... complete euphoria!!! On second installation to my Ariens 10 HP ..., complete laughter. I was hurling EOD snow right across the street onto the neighbors lawn near the curb, Awesome!!! To answer your question, I found that when you remove the chute and look down the throat of the impeller housing look for anything that might come in contact with the impeller mod. I found it useful to curve the end of your "paddles" you put on - at both ends. I used 1/4 inch bolts, fender washers on paddle side, with nylon castle nuts to secure them.., paddles aren't going anywhere! Finally, make sure you liberally lubricate your impeller housing before running it - this will help with the brake in period.
Remember to laugh after seeing the snow flying out of the chute, its comical. Oh by the way, between houses - don't forget to keep the chute straight ahead or you will be ordering windows.
Best of Luck!
