  • Starter Pads

    Hey all... Got a question for ya. I just changed out a starter pad Sat. night, It was heavily eroded and hard as a rock. It was grey and color, I was wondering if these were the OEM starter pads.

    Well the real reason for the post is to ask which by majority is the best starter pad out there.. I know we all decided on the most liked kicker roller but how bout starter pads? I installed a soft red one from Murrey. It kinda looks like jello, or maybe im just hungry. But it is real soft and just sliped right into the starter pad frame. No trouble, seems to be holding. What are good starter pads, durriable yet not hard to install?

    Well thats just like your opinion man...

    Beware of the ones that slip in easy.....that means other have been there.....LMAO need to drill a hole in the side of the pad frame and run a sheet metal screw into the pad if you wish for it to remain there.

    Take the whole assembly out and glue that bin bumper to the starter pad bracket where it contacts the lift rod cover.....this spaces it back and allows the ball in easier.

      The grey ones are from AMF. They work good and last a long time and aren't hard to get in. I have used some black ones from Vantage too. They are softer and install easily, but seem to wear a little quicker than the AMF ones. I have never seen a Murrey one so I can't say anything about those. I also agree with 82/70 guru about the screw deal. If the pad can slide up in the bracket, it will and you'll have balls just sittin' in the door.
      Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!
