trying to find the engine brand/model number of my MTD snowblower

ok I looked at the READ THIS sticky, so...


WHAT IS THE EQUIPMENT snowblower
NAME BRAND OF YOUR EQUIPMENT MTD 317-181-000
NAME BRAND OF YOUR ENGINE no idea, trying to find this out
WHAT MODEL NUMBER IS YOUR ENGINE no idea, trying to find this out
CLEAR DESCRIPTION OF WHAT IT IS DOING, WHAT IT DID PRIOR TO THE PROBLEM, AND WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO TROUBLESHOOT IT SO FAR.

ok, this part I have in detail. carb is missing an air cleaner, carb bowl leaks, dries out, get crud in it. cannot find info about the engine to determine what parts to get. following info I have been able to find

model date 317-181-000 J036B
MTD snowblower engine

on shroud 1627M 6268 (google shows nothing)

stamped on the carbuerator body 1064 J6T (google shows nothing)

stamped on carburetor bowl:
lauson power products (website found, apears to be a tecumseh only supplier)
grafton, wis
made in
usa

Lauson power website has no contact info to confirm this is a tecumseh engine. mostly links to tecumseh site.
tecumseh site is about as bad. THIS is what happens when you fire the high paid website developer and get the teen who thinks he knows HTML. sheesh.

MTD parts diagram lists "ENGINE" without any reference numbers. big help.

only source that seems to be of any help is this forum. so I signed up and posted here.

A lot of snowblowers don't have air cleaners or filters

If you post a picture of the engine from the carb side we could probably tell you what it is and where the numbers would be.

Your engine is a Tecumseh AH600. As noted no air filter on a snow thrower. Carb is part number 632410, carb kit 632760b

The mounts are likely when the engine is used in a different application. A snow blower breathes cold air and the snow blowing fills the air with snow crystals. The two plug up just about anything you put there to filter the intake.

I gave you the engine model number carb part number & carb kit what more do you need? Your engine is an AH600!!!!!!!!!!! 1627M is the Spec number for the engine any dealer can lookup your engine with that number.

I just wanted to know how the cross reference was determined, thank you.

You must realize the people that are answering your questions are, or were dealers, technicians, etc that have been around since before the first Lassie was a pup and have or have kept technical stuff and microfiche from the beginning of time. I am grateful for the knowledge they share. Have a good one. Geo

Understood and many thanks! anyone know what size screws are on the air cleaner side? I am thinking of making a screen with hardware cloth to keep larger objects out. yes I read the post about snow clogging air filters.
