identify tecunseh engine

I have a Troy Built Pony Tiller with a 5 HP Chore King Tecumseh Horizontal Engine on it. It is old but runs great. All the identifying
markings are gone on both the engine and tiller.
I need a new pull start for the engine. All I can say is that the screws that hold the pull start on screw in facing the horizontal shaft. The other type (which I don't have) would screw in facing the engine. There are just 4 small screws that hold the pull start on. I have been on the Tecumseh web-site and cannot find the type I am looking for. I know it's not much information, but that's all I have.
Please let me know if I would need to get any other type of info on the engine that would help to identify this.
Any information would be appreciated.

I am guessing your engine is an H50 or HH50.

Start looking here to ID your engine:

Tecumseh Parts Lists Tecumseh Engines Parts lists

Tecumseh Parts Lists Tecumseh Engines Parts lists

These are aftermarket but they give OEM part number:
