Parts can be tricky for snowbirds..
but yes, first step, we need to know the model.
There are at least three "generations" of snowbirds, and they dont have much in common..

That snowblower was made by Yardman (parent company: MTD), in the early 1980's.

googling the model number brings up some hits that might be helpful:

What parts would you need?
Some can be found, others you should look for another cheap, junker blower for parts.

What parts do you need?
