If you have a 1 inch gap you definitely have the wrong impeller and possibly the whole gearbox.

You have tried the rubber strips? You might need metal plate under the rubber to support it with that big of a gap. Run the metal to like 1/8" from the edge and then the rubber all the way to the edge as close as possible.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I can put my fingers behind it, when off of course. it fills with snow. It's odd. When I replaced the bearing, which was beyond toast, I didn't notice anything out of place, but I didn't have to remove the whole auger either, i could reach around and barely touch the carriage bolts with my fingers to hold them in place, actually one fell out and i was able to put it back in, there's enough clearance. Should have taking a few pictures

Is it possible it was bolted to the auger shaft in the wrong place, is there adjustments there?
post some pics so I can have a looksee in there.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

I am going to need better pics. some need to be further out. and try to dry everything up in there. I can't see anything with those. take a vid of the clutch problem. even inside of the bowels of that machine.
