MTD single stage

Got this for free. 21 inch MTD I first wanted to see if it ran before spending money so I went to remove float bowl and the brass bolt snapped off in the carb I purchased a new carb off amazon for less than $20 recieved the carb yesterday installed it few pulls later and there is life in this little beast. Now that was Tecumseh parts pretty easy to find. MTD parts on the other hand are nothing but a head ache. I have numbers off of parts I removed and nothing seems to match I need a belt auger cable and would like to replace the paddles and do some paint touch up. This is my first single stage machine so any help from you guys is appreciated.
Thanks
Craig

MAZEL TOV on that find. I don't think you really have to worry about stock touch up paint though.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

Hello Craig. Have you tried looking on the MTD web site? Your machine is a 2002 mode according to the MTD site.

Outdoor Power Equipment Parts: Use the Part Finder Tool from MTD

Shave plate (scraper) 753-1033
Flat paddle rubber 753-0782
Curved paddle rubber 753-0780A
Auger cable 753-0910A

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 421-QZE (38585) 2008

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

Looks like a Walmart one..... MTD 31C-140-352 - Yard Machines Snow Thrower (2002) (Wal-Mart) General Assembly Diagram and Parts List | PartsTree.com

The cheaper way to get new paddle blades is just to cut your own from some conveyor belt stock you pick u from a farm store. Use the old one as a guide and just add 1/4" around the ouside of the curve. (I use an old chunk of a paddle as a pencil guide when I trace it out) I cut it out with a sabre saw......




I am deathly allergic to shovels!

Thanks for the help
I will check the MTD web site and yes that looks like the cable I need.
I tried to upload a short video of it running but something went wrong
As far as paint goes I just want cover the rusted spots
Also I found out that fuel milage isn't to good. I put 20oz of 50:1 compliments of work and that didn't last long at all The tank is very small on this machine
Thanks Craig
