Don't bother. If you go to your local small motor' repair shop or the local dump/ waste recycle center you will find lots of old lawn mowers or in your case snow blowers that have been discarded for reasons other than the engines. The Tecumseh engine is usually the last thing still in very good shape and you can get it for a very low price. By mistake I left one out side all winter under snow and rain, it started first pull in the spring.
That does not sound like a complete Tecumseh model number.
You have several options... Your first and probably best option would be your local small engine repair shop. They may even have the parts in stock, if not in stock will likely have it in a few days. Or you can look online at places like outdoordistributors.
No matter where you get the part from you will need a complete model and spec and maybe a serial number ( off of the motor itself). Also be aware that since Tecumseh went out of business a few years ago that certain parts are becoming increasingly hard to find.
The rod is cheap. If you're an experienced handymand/mechanic, it's a medium difficult job. But if the rod damaged the engine when it cam loose, the engine will have to be replaced. Need to tear it down to investigate.
tecumseh snow engines are natorious for not starting,first thing you need to do is take the old gas from the tank.gas only stays good for about 30 days.YEP .....that's all.there should be two screws that holds the cover over the carb.take the bowl off and there should be water and dirt in the bowl.clean that out,be careful not to drop the needle off the float.if you do it take a little patence to put it back on.now the nut you took off the bowl has three holes in the side of it.clean all the holes,one is really small and it's up twards the theads..replace the bowl gasket and reassemble the carb.now you should have fuel to the cylinder and it should start.if not let me know
take off the and and turn the coiler on the inside a few turns and when it starts to get tight put a screwdrive through it so it wont spin, put the rope in the hole and bring it out and tie a knot. the turn it gently to release the screwdriver and let it coil the rope back in
