ID a blower with partial model # ?

I'm trying to sort out what model of snowblower I've got. I got it from the previous owner of my house with limited documentation - just the Tecumseh Snow King manual from 1988. The engine is a dual shaft 8 HP. The snowblower itself came from Agway, and is labeled as an 825 (8 hp 25" cut) Unfortunately, the model number on the blower itself is smudged (it isn't embossed) and I can't read much of it. I have some pictures in the introduction section. I was trying to find the right model # as the guy at my local shop that was so helpful, is no longer there.

A couple guys gave me some links in the introduction section, but I don't quite see what I'm looking for.

Here's what I do have:

the only clear number is the serial # 889926388

the top line under model starts with A3 then is smeared
the second line is 6123 smeared then 195
last line is 82 smear 6

as best as I can read it...
I don't know if it's important, but is says 'Made in Canada' Even though it lists a US address with Western International

If you've got any ideas that would be great

Agway did not make their own blowers so most likely the model number will not help you any longer. (Agway went under) Most likely however it was build by mtd or noma that have the agway logo. What you will need to do is locate a model that looks exactly like yours and see if it matches your layout on the parts breakdown.

3 Ariens 522 Single Stage
Toro 3521 Repowered with a 6.5hp
Craftsman 521 (selling)

other toys
Troybuilt Horse 70s or 80s model
Troybuilt Econo-horse
John Deere Jx75
John Deere Js46
John Deere 111

and a few other parts machines.

Pictures would really be helpful. Sometimes machines are sold under multiple names. Matching pictures sometimes finds comparable machines.
