Try a google search. A link came up to Images of the manual/parts list, but in true google fashion, there are a ton of photos, but not all for your model, you will have to pick thru them a bit.. Another option is to call Sears Canada and ask if they still have one they could email to you. I got a replacement manual for a chop saw that way, and they didn't charge. Don't call the parts dept though, try and get to a service person who has access to the computer system archives.

Work fascinates me.
I can watch somebody work for hours...

Since it starts with a "C" it's likely a Canadian model and there hasn't been a lot of luck tracking down manuals on those, some yes others no.

You can also try giving Sears of Canada a call and see if they have a hard copy available.

Post some photos of yours and maybe we can come close to an American one with a PDF manual ??

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I have the same blower and found a manual that I can use for parts. I do not remember where I got it so I do not know if I can post it. It is a Murray blower.

manual

I needed a manual for the used craftsman snowblower I bought thankfully all the numbers on machine were still readable on sticker on housing I went to searspartsdirect.com entered all the info and was able to download the pdf and printed the entire manual put it in a nice binder and saved $28 because that's what sears wanted for a replacement did the same for the new Briggs&stratton engine that was installed on it as well
