Well worn blower housing fix

The pictures show my way of fixing a Honda HS1132 that was really pitted from previous owners stone driveway.

I will let everyone know how it stands up to this winters snow.

If anything, you have reduced the clearance between the housing and impeller, which should work in favor of the performance of the machine. By chance, did you use some sort of adhesive under the plastic?

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

I've done that with old MTDs before. Lined the drum with part of a 5 gallon bucket. It adds about 10' to the distance it will throw snow.

I did try adhesive....but it did not hold the plastic pail very well. Certainly not enough to use it with adhesive only.

I have to report that with this latest very wet heavy snow. My plastic pail lining of the impeller housing must of gotten caught or sucked up into the impeller. I've lost about 3/4 of the pail lining. Since I'm without a heated garage to work in.....have to wait until spring, before relining it again. I will use the counter sunk stainless steel screws, that very well could still be there, but use a larger diameter washer to hold the plastic down, away from the impeller.

I had planned to pull the auger & impeller in the spring to repaint all surfaces. Now I have just to find another pail....Guess I have to shop at Home Depot.....get a orange pail.

Merry Christmas to all !!

If I may ask, what is the circumference of the auger housing?
