MTD Snowflite Old

Evening All,
I just got my first snow blower yesterday it is a MTD Snowflite the tag looks like 323-830-004 and another number looks like 407628 . The tag is very faded so I might have the numbers wrong also when I search for those numbers even on the MTD Canadian site nothing comes up.it has a HM 80 Tecumseh engine on it. Nothing really wrong other than a leaky carb engine starts first pull,and I have a kit ordered for it.Thinking mid 1970,s vintage anyone know for sure ? I removed the square exhaust and used two 45,s and a cigar muffler to get the exhaust from pointing straight back at you.Any know concerns with the drive line ? Thanks Mike

Don't have info on your unit but wanted to say welcome and good idea getting the exhaust away from you

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Nice machine there. I have a 75 MTD snowflite and it is black and yellow and doesn't look like yours. You may have an early 70's or 60's blower there. If you post the numbers off the Tecumseh engine, we should be able to narrow it down more.

I picked up a snowflite just like that the other day. the only thing difference is the white guard and the part that says snowflite right on the front are a different design. I got mine as non working not to long ago. I haven't gotten to it yet. Have to decide if I want to get it running or to part it out.

That snow blower works really well. I had a snapper branded version. It was the same front end but different drive set up.

This is a link for a manual that should be the same as yours.

Thanks to everyone who took the time reply ! So this is a MTD original and Snapper re badge it ? So far on the engine I can make out is HM80 155079 - 3235 ? It is a little hard to read and the temperature overnight has dropped to -15 going to be a old fashioned winter .Snow in the forecast too,come on carb kit ! Cheers Mike
