Snow Bird snowblowers?

Does anyone here have experiance with Snow Bird snowblowers?
I'm trying to help a friend of mine who is having trouble with his. According to him, these snowblowers were made in the late 60' and early 70's. He has cleaned the carborator and gas tank and it still won't start.
Any suggestions?

I haven't done an extensive search on the internet about these snowblowers, but I'll see what I can find.

He is correct. MTD bought them. But you are having engine problems. Can you get the engine numbers? I am thinking you may have a Briggs & Stratton with an updraft carb.

I found those sites when I searched these snowblowers. I'm going to help him get his regestration figured out here, than he can give you the engine specs.
