How do I identify the year of my 652?

Here is a picture of the tag. I hope to get more pics of the whole thing tonight if I get time to work on it... I'm just curious as to the year this thing was made.

So this tells me it's a 5 HP, from July 1st of 1971 if I am not mistaken... So I am only about 4 months older that this snowblower... Cool.

GRRRR... So, now I find out my brother-in-law swapped the engine on this with one from a tiller because the one that was on the snowblower had an oil leak... I did get luck though and saved the tiller and the original engine from this snowblower from the scrapyard yesterday. Didn't get time to get the date code from the correct engine though.

The engine that is on the snowblower now is black, and the one on the tiller (which has the tall tube on the carb, sans air filter) is redish orange. So is this blower supposed to have a redish orange engine
