Thanks greencard.

Removing the Teflon strips was easy. I know they are not the same size as new strips, but the old strips were pretty easy to reinstall. I also dug into my pulley selection to see what I have laying around. I'll be placing an order probably Monday.

No play in the splines at all!

Details please. I'm ignorant about the different types of snouts. I have another blower on the shelf that the strips appear to be good, the blower is tight and rolls over smoothly. I wasn't planning on getting into it, but now I might remove the snout to see what I have.

It's been a pretty easy project so far. The only thing to note is the gears and bolts were red loctited on. Also, when using the gear puller make sure you put a small washer between the puller and the rotor ends. I used the taper end on the puller and it got into the first thread on the rotor. No big deal, I just had to chase the 1 hole with a tap. I learned from the first one.

I have pretty good luck with a air hammer . Dont laugh . Have a shank with a brass drift fitted on the end make sure its supported so the back side give it a little blip 90% time it will get going .you would definetly want to try it on something junk first.
they had half spline full spline and keyed for that style blower . You hit a stump or burp the engine with a grippy belt ona half spline it often fries the splines.thats whhere a lot of people get wild with loctite too lol

Ok, I tore down my other blower to just restrip it. Looks like some JackWeed center punched the damn strips in! Also, looks like confirmation that I have 2 identical half spline snout blowers.
Also, the difference between a 250 and 420 manifold, Oringed and non Orined. And 2 Dominators 1 with velocity stacks.
