Help identify Snowblower

I bought this Snowblower for 150$, I need to order some parts but i have no idea what brand, model or year it is, i hope somebody in here can recognize it. It has a 5HP Briggs and Stratton engine on it. Sorry pictures are not to good since we had some snow last night

Thanks :-) i gonna check for the serial tomorrow, but last time i checked i couldnt see anything probably because the previous owner painted over it i dont know if ishould start a new thread because i have some issues with the blower. it starts fine after 2-3 pulls and after a little while it just stalls
what i did:
New engine oil
Carburetor rebuild
new air filter
new spark plug

Yes, a Gilson Early Gear drive. with the wishbone handle making it likely a Wizard or Senator branded unit. Other than the alternate handle it's one of these. It looks like a single speed Tecumseh 5 HP version.

nice score, that is a gear drive per Pete, but I noticed it only has ONE shifter handle, instead of the typical 2 handles the early gear drives had- does that mean this is a single speed, rather than the 2 speed version ?

I always wanted an early gear drive, the cog drive looks bulletproof in those.
