That is just a casting stamp it is of no use.
What are the numbers on the carb?

The carb service part number is 630992B it was built on May 13, 19?9 it fits on a very long list of H50 & H60 engines 5HP & 6HP

They did make a 626 do you have the UT number from the plate on the back of the machine?

The question mark in the date means that it was built in 69 or 79 or 89 as far as I know there is no way to tell which. Please post some pictures of the engine.

If this is the engine that was originally on that snowblower, it is a 1969 or 1979. The lack of engagement handles on the handle bars tell me it is pre-1989. The size of the gas tank tells me it is a 7 or 8 hp engine.

my great grand father (rest in peace) gave this to me and i remeber him saying it lasted up until the 80s so its not 1989 its origanal color was white i have had the engine completely disasembled so if you need anything that could help you identify it just let me know i could take it apart with my eyes closed

After reading this and looking again at the photos, the engine is a 1969. What gave it away is the so called "primer" that is actually just an extra choke, the button on the carb that you push. It is either a 7 or 8 hp. It has points.
