well, my bracket lasted quite a while, but after doing gravel drives and ice, i went through another torn urethane center shoe on my Power-V.......

why can't someone mold a metal bracket inside urethane or rubber to make these more durable.

well, it's back to the drawing board, in the mean time , i guess i'll use some scraps and make a block.

captdevo,

I'm not familar with the Boss center shoe. I do know it's diferent than the Fisher EZV and Western MVP(which are the same.

Here is a pic of the Urethane center peice I use instead of the factory bracket and rubber peice. You just bolt it on the back of the trip edge useing the inner most bolts for the cutting edge.

Works great on the Western and Fisher V's:grinz
