Any body know about what year this is. Not sure yet what to do with it yet. I have been looking for one of those carbs for a while now. Big gear box in the auger part, compared to the newer ones. Noel

Some of the guys can translate the numbers on the engine to a year.

what are the numbers on the shroud?

 

I can't tell what the engine is from the picture.  50/50 shot of briggs or Tecumseh.

Not the original shroud on it , I would say. Off a vertical engine, my guess. No safety system on this blower, lock the handle in and away she goes without hands on it any where. Must be sixties or early seventies. Noel

Hate when that happens.

 

The Red Capped 110V starter blower is a Tecumseh right?  Threw me when I seen the metal cap briggs.

How wide is it? Most blowers were 24" or less until the late 80's.

It's a 28" cut. Briggs engine with a 12 volt starter. I guess not as old as I figured. Noel
