I have a feeling that the blower I have in primer (that this chute and deflector are from) is very early. The newer updated to the older blower (engine driven blowers) had sheet metal to cover the chute "winch" and the winch itself was bolted onto the blower body. The one I am rebuilding and have in primer, does not have that. Also, the chute only had a 1/4-20 nut welded to it for the cable, where the newer (old stlye) had a raised shaft that was threaded.
The blower and chute is this style...
Here is the way I think they may go. The really odd thing is that the deflector has a square hole like a carriage bolt would go into it, yet the chute itself does not!

I did pick up new stainless hardware and fender washers, I figure they should hold up better than the ones I powder-coated.

Here's what his looks like:
Big washer goes between the chute and deflector, a star washer on both ends of the bolt & the head on the inside.
Hope that helps.

Better hurry FFEMT. They are calling for heavy snow on Tuesday
She's ready to blow! All that I am "missing" is that I still have the AG's mounted and have not swapped the loaded & chained turf's on for the winter. Although, I do have that 225lb lead weight box on the rear still.
I did find the door's that I will use to build the dual sliding doors on the tractor shed though. Found a pile of these 28" doors at a local bargain outlet. $45 each, solid pine. These, some bed rail angle iron and a pair of roller blades later, and I will have a nice set of sliding doors for the tractor shed!
After the chute was bolted on, I wrapped new cable on the blower and greased it up. The blower chute works really nice now! I added some thin grease on both sides of the stainless washer between the chute and the deflector too. I really can't wait to give her a good test!
