Mower blade adapter key

Posted by silvermouse TX (My Page) on

I failed to put the hardened washer and lock washer on when I replaced the blade on my sp mower. The blade adapter broke (big chunk around the key) and I finally found a replacement adapter. The key is the circle sector type and I need to know if the flat part goes into the motor shaft keyway or into the blade adapter keyway. I have new washers and will never forget to put them on again. Thanks for your help.

Depends on the type of key way in the shaft. If it is short and semi circle the key will only go in one way. If it is a square slot use a straight key rather than the woodruff.
