Looking for Simplicity parts

I picked up this old Simplicity the other day and got it running pretty good and would like to restore it to original.Best I can tell it is missing the belt cover/guard and the drift cutters if that is what the arms off the shute are called.And would like a period correct recoil starter to replace the late 60's early 70's style. Or could somebody take good pictures of the belt guard with measurements and show attachment points and I should be able to make one.

69 ariens is right Ebay will be your best bet. Try googling your 1962 Simp. and see what comes up as well maybe you'll find a parts one also try google images...put in your model and see if some pics come up you might not find a 62 but you find a younger match...64/65 one. If you click on the pic it might be an currnet auction or a seller of one and maybe you could one buy it or two contact the owner to ask some questions...IE:Manuals, parts, belt cover questions. Did you find a model number???

That should about do it by the looks on the cover of the manual it may not have had a belt guard and the drift cutters I will make at work.
