Am sharpening my blade as per instruction book, but there is no inner flange to align the blade. Why not? All I see is a round flange with D cut in it.Got unit directl;y from EGO as a warranty replacement.

John, are all of these parts there?

As Mike said, the newer style mowers don't key the blade to the shaft to help prevent damage should the blade hit something solid. The clamp load of the bolt drives the blade.
