Simplicity 560 New To Me

Just picked up my first Simplicity snowblower a couple days ago. It's a pristine 560 that looks like it was in a time capsule. I've had a couple older Ariens that needed some work that I've sold, but I think I'm going to be hanging onto this one.

Thanks, it really hasn't been used much at all. Anyone know the years of manufacture of the 560? 1980's?

Thanks guys, I paid $250 for it. Anyone know the years on these? Haven't been able to figure that out in my research.

Nice machine. I have a 1983 Simplicity 870 very Similar to yours. Its 80's. If you look at the Tecumseh model number the serial number will say what year it is. It will be something like 5275D. The first digit is the year. So for example 5=1985. The next 3 digits are day of year.275= 275th, the letter is assembly line I believe.
If you go to the Simplicity website and type in your units I.D. number you can get your operators manual and parts manual. Their may be a couple operators manuals for each year they made that unit, theirs 3 for mine, the one with the pictures closest that match your machine will be for your machine. The last page of the manual has the year print date.
On your engine I think the model is on top and will be hidden below the electric start switch box. It may be on the side but pretty sure thats where they stamped the model number at that time. Thats where mine is. The only manual you cant get off simplicity's website is the service manual. I'm trying to find mine now, because I need to replace my friction disk. Otherwise I'm good to go for the snow.
