Help finding snow blower auger housing assembly

I have an old MTD YardMan's snow blower model number 31AE553F401 that needs an auger housing assembly replacement. I couldn't find a place where they sell this part. Second question, is it worth replacing this housing assembly or is it better to just purchase a new snow blower?

A 1999 vintage machine. Minimal chassis parts available now.
I did see a Yardman 26" green assembly available..... $365 plus shipping.
Not worth it for that old machine.

Find a local small engine repair place or someone that fixes small engines. Many of then have tons of old blowers you may find one that will work. Facebook marketplace is a good place to start. Just a thought if you want to put the work into it.

I'd want to make the repair, as well, but finding that auger housing is quite a challenge. It may be easier and cheaper to find a duplicate machine and swap out parts.
