I'm wondering if there's a way to get a chute control on my older blower?
I used a newer one and I could control the angle of the chute with a lever instead of whacking it with my hand...
is there a way to put something like that on my older one?

Chute control (like a turn handle) or deflector control?

I was unable to find the parts to convert my old blower (Yard Machines). It was one of several reasons I bought my Ariens Platinum 24.
Biggest problem was how to recreate the notches cut into the control panel (that locks the deflector to a specific angle ).
You could just buy the parts for an existing blower model, but need to find a way to lock the cable in position.

you could go about this in a different way. You could convert it to electric. There are several youtube videos that show you how to do this. Try "convert snowblower deflector".
