MTD Snowflite 5/21 Snowblower Help

Hi I was needing some help with my snowblower. I bought it at a garage sale and it works but needs some new parts and I can't find a manual for it. It's a MTD Snowflite 5/21 Snowblower with a Tecumseh engine on it I don't have Serial Numbers on me atm, I can post those later tonight with maybe some pictures. The parts that I need replaced on it are the muffler and a new primer bulb, other than that it runs fine but it's also very warm out right now and won't be that easy to start up this winter.

For engine parts it is usually best to go with the Tecumseh model numbers. On the top of the engine you should see something like H50 - xxxxx SER 0000x. H50 will be horizontal 5 horsepower, xxxxx will be the specific model number for your engine and the 0000x will be the day the date the engine was built.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I have rebuilt one of those, check out my album.

They are the good old, heavy machine. Made when MTD was a more respected brand.

The parts that you have described, are pretty common parts. And when you find your complete model number, you should have no problem finding them. I would also suggest bouncing the part numbers off of amazon, for a price comparison.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.
