Question Impeller kit install

What type fasteners did you use to install your mod? Have you had any trouble with your fasteners? Do you wish you had used some other type?
TIA

Hello Joe. I used three 1/4-20x1" stainless bolts with fender washers and ny-lock nuts on each paddle of my 8/24 Toro with no regrets.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 421-QZE (38585) 2008

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I used #12 tek self-drilling screws with fender washers; a truck mudflap for the rubber. Only been using it for a couple of months, but all is well so far and I'm more than pleased with the results. I agree with 1132le - you'll be grinning after you install it. The first time I put my blower into some slush after the mod, I could hardly believe my eyes....

I have to admit...it's magical...I did a Jacobsen that was plugging up with slush, did two out of four impellers, and blasted the slush into tomorrow.

Last year and older guy then me mid 60s around the corner from me got rid of his st824 had it for 20 yrs before that he had other ariens blowers
I told him about the impeller kit he was skeptical yada yada why doesnt ariens do it if it works so good is it safe?

He got a 28 pro i had told him about auto turn how nice it was he tried mine and wanted it
one of the bad super wet storms we got he tried using the 28 pro but it was blowing good

I went over with the kitted st824 rust bucket he just looked shell shocked as i blew it 35 feet across his front yard
Hey can you help me put that on mine sure lol

Actually I have installed these kits in a couple of my past blowers so I know how well they work but I'm really curious about all the different mounting variants.
Keep adding your installation methods, guys, and how the install worked for you.
