Hello and welcome to the forum k74. It looks like this may be an old MTD Snowflite snow blower. The numbers stamped into the top of the recoil shroud near the spark plug will tell us what motor you have and what starter you need. The number may start with H50, Hsk50 or something similar

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Cool thanks, I'll check it out when I get home ThursdAy night and get back to you. Youre right it is a snowflite. The mtd guy figured it's a 72 model but he couldn't get me a starter.

It would also help if you could take a picture or two of your motor for us to see. If your motor has teeth around the flywheel edge, adding a starter will be a lot simpler.

It's got bolt holes for a starter and a ring gear. Can I get an AC starter or will. I have to usea battery?

I believe you can get the 110 v starter. Something like this one.
