    Anyone know off the inner diameter of the shoe washers for adjusting height? It's a Sno-way for what it's worth.

    Thanks in advance, wep.

    Take one with you to the hardware supplier. Mine take a 1" center hole.

    While I was there I also bought extra snap over pins that hold them on.

    Thanks 2 u both. Plow is in CO and I'm in CA and when I arrive I'll have a foot or two and will need to plow immediately without moving all my new gravel off the driveway. Thanks for the input.

    throw the shoes in the trash can and just leave the plow an inch or so

    Shoes probably won't be much help on fresh gravel. There is a lot of info here on gravel guards. Especially if that's all you're plowing is gravel, that is the way to go.

    On a side note, you could send a foot or two of snow our way.
