ancient artifact needs to be Identified

I received a snow blower from a friend who got it from this older guy. He said he got it when he was just a teenager and bot it with money from his paper route. I called up sears hotline and could only get out of them that they enter it in there system in 1987.

The motor model number is
craftsmen 143-626-022
Serial number 1175D

The frame it is on
Model number 53682559ud1
sears robek simpsons limited canada

I know the motor is a tecumseh motor but i cant find anything out about this blower its so intriguing.

taker52. I can't comment on the snow blower age, but the engine model number is a Tecumseh H60-75263J. Is the serial number readable on top of the recoil shroud in back of the spark plug??

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I cant really help either, but the Sears 536 prefix indicates it was a AMF -> Dynamark -> Noma -> Murray.
As Grunt said, the Tecumseh serial will help with the birth date.

The story behind it's history is interesting too. Is it possible to get in touch with its original owner?

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

He unfortunately pushing a brand new blower in heaven

As for the eng dates i will look for others but this was on a craftsman name plate on the back of the motor . I found one on the carb when i was cleaning it throttle stuck open.

I found a photo of a machine that looked like it but a different brand on youtube and they said it was a early 60s

I was attempting to tighten the chain and couldnt so i was looking for a link and when moving it saw it would tighten and loosen so i am guessing the motor shaft is bent.

I removed the fuel tank and it was rusted to all **** in it and decided to replace it with a lawn mower plastic tank.

That is an old one. Mine are from the 70's and that probably predates mine by 10-20 years. If I had to guess, I'd go with Dynamark as the most likely manufacturer.

Hmm... I was given one of those last year and I in turn passed it on to a friend. He possibly scrapped it but I'm not sure. I never even tried to start it.
