Helping ID older snowblower

Hi, Ive searched the net high and low to try and get some information on the a sears craftsman 5/23 2 stage snowblower. I think the model is C459-52228. Ill attach a photo of the tag. I think its a Canadian model.

What im looking for is the diagram or a part for the linkage from the throttle (on the carb) to the governor arm. Its a manual throttle control via a cable on this blower.

Any help most appriciated.

A photo of the snowblower itself would be helpful..
someone might be able to ID who made it, just by what it looks like..

Are you sure it is C459?
could you take a closer look at that middle digit?
C459 is coming up as something different..

Could maybe be a 6..... but on my google searches it brought up nothing. Does the C denote Canadian?

Thx

The C might designate Canada..not sure..
but there is a much more obvious thing that absolutely pegs it as a Canadian model!
The label is in English and French!
dead giveaway..so yes, its definitely a Canadian model.

Sears/Craftsman is known for having completely different USA vs. Canada snowblower models..made by different manufacturers..
which makes the origin of Canadian models somewhat harder to trace..

Lol, yes the French was the give away. I asked about the C as I was using it in my searches and wasnt sure if it was important part of the model or just a prefix.

Thx
