So my lighter duty PHD has a 1 3/8" output shaft, and the new 12" auger I got wants a 2" shaft which is standard on the larger PHD augers. My plan here is to find a bushing with a 1 1/2" id and 2" od, drill it to match the Auger holes to minimize the play. I realize there is some risk using a larger auger than it is designed for, but with grade 2 bolts I figure they will shear before any damage is done.
Does anyone have a good source for a bushing this size? I think I'd prefer to get one with a shoulder so I am not constantly fighting to keep it from sliding down the Auger shaft. (I measured and there is enuf room for an 1/8" shoulder.)
