Zelco Snow Thrower (supposedly made by MTD?)

Hello Snowblower forums!

I scored an antique Zelco 20" Single stage Snow Thrower a while back for cheap and now looking for more information or at least a maintenance manual for this fellow. I googled it and it seems that they were made by MTD way back in the 70's so I thought I'd go here and get some more info.

This ebay listing is the only mention of this brand of snow thrower.

The actual unit looks like this.

It runs on pure gas, so assume it is not a 2-cycle.
