OK, where to begin. My 1971 Ariens, model 910995 was in need of some TLC, so I decided now would be the best time to pull it apart, sand, prime, and paint the Sno-Thro attachment. So I disassemble, bagging and labeling as I go along. When I got to the rakes, I labeled each one, LH and RH, simple enough. NOT. I can remember whether I labeled them as viewed from the operators position (correct way), or from the front as I was taking them off. Now I do know the u-channel supports open side faces the outside, but from there I am not certain which side goes where?
SO, can anyone please clue me to the correct position, LH or RH of the rakes. Also, is there a "phase" alignment when you lock them to the shaft with the shear pins. In other words, you can rotate the rake on the shaft 180 degrees with regards to locking them into position. Am I over thinking this entire process? I just don't want to put the bloody thing back together only to find out I was wrong when I drag the thing out for the first blizzard of the season.
