I actually need the model number to find the right gearbox assembly. Mine exploded, also gonna get shear pins cause mine didn’t work.
Secondly, I thought it was right but the pulley that drives the wheels on metal disk. That rubber is almost fully gone.

Nobody has seen this snowblower before?
There must be some information out there
Its just another MTD... Every site has your parts. Go to the MTD site (or others) with your model number from the tag on the back end of the tractor section. The model number tag is going to look something like this:

The problem is I don’t have that tag. Otherwise I wouldn’t be asking. But if they are all the same, then thank you I’ll just run with that info

But if they are all the same
They are not all the same, but MTD parts are fairly ubiquitous. It would be very unusual to not have the model/serial number tag or the UPC tag. Where did you find the "1183a mv"? Without the model number it's difficult to find all the right parts; with it it's trivial.

It could be a 317E740F000, but that's only one of MANY possibilities.

okay, sadly the tag is worn off and that number is what’s left in the middle of this huge tag location.It’s like the back of the tag but the front was rubbed away. Kind of looks like a holographic sticker with those numbers in the middle. I’mguesssingit’s a number for the tag itself not the model of the machine.

It could be this one? Sold through Sam's Club in 1997... 118 is the Sam's Club retailer code for MTD.

That looks like it could be!
You could determine the manufacture date of the Tecumseh motor from the label on the motor. It's not likely very different from the manufacture date of the snowblower. Also, searching for the model number of the motor together with "1183a" or similar might turn up a picture of the snowblower.

Ohh that is a Wonderfulidea.

I’ll hop right in that!
