2006 Yardworks 5/22

Hello everyone, new guy here. I picked this Yardworks 5/22 up from the side of the road a few weeks ago. There was a sign on it that said auger doesn't turn, gearbox issue. I didnt really look at it too closely at first. So I tossed it in the truck and took it home. When I got back to the house, First thing I noticed was the Chinese engine. It starts and runs fine, whatever, no big deal. The second thing I noticed was that one of the shear pins was only half broken. Just for testing I put another bolt in to see if the auger would turn. Auger completes maybe 1 rotation and stops. That leads me to believe the worm gear is toast. Now for the biggest problem... I can't find a model number anywhere on this thing so I can order parts. I've heard Yardworks was made by MTD at one point, but they are no longer listed on the MTD website. Any ideas?

Bought this gear. Way too small.
Got mine torn down finally, and found this...

Know of any other part numbers that would match the gear I pulled out? I couldn't find a number anywhere on it.

That was my thought, other than the more recent made Iíve only seen Tecumseh engines on MTD Might be able to mod a MTD gearbox in there but the cost may be more than its worth

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

Considering its from 2006, it seems unlikely the snowblower body is a MTD clone..
Its more likely to be a "real" MTD, with a replacement engine..
