Ok, I have an 06 MT GHS. I changed out the old style blower for the new hardened one. The one that has the extra piece of steel around the blower housing. So after cutting and grinding and fitting........!!!!!! lol, I finally got it to fit. My question is, the intake tube support bracket that I took off on my old style blower does not fit the new one. When I put it on, I had to grind off one of the little boxes that was welding onto the face plate only to find out that its now preventing the hydro fan from spinning and it also does not fit the circle in the blower housing where all the grass is fed. So can somebody tell me if there is a new style intake tube support bracket that goes with the new hardened blower because I talked to my dealer and the mechanic there and the mechanic said that they have not made any changes to that piece since around 2000. When I put the intake tube support bracket back up to my old blower, it fits likes a glove. So I'm lost. Id call walker now and see what they say, but I have work at 6 and I have been up since 6pm yesterday working over night. So any help or can tell me what I am doing wrong would be really helpful.
