Small Engines (Lawn Mowers, etc.)/snow thrower parts

Question
Hello,

I have a snow thrower model no. 310-100A 20" two cycle snow flite.On the back of the manual it says MTD Products Inc. I spoke with them and they no longer carry the part. I am looking for part no. 05185 plastic direction vane assembly and 723-0285 winter fuel cap. I would appreciate any direction you can give me. I tried googling but got in too deep for me to figure out what to do next. Thank you.

Answer
Lots of sites the TC-410240 part number for the fuel cap.  The plastic direction vane assembly is going to be very difficult to find as the part is no longer available.

Have you called some of you local small engine repair shops and asked if they have any old used snowblowers or snowblower parts?  You may be able to find one that you can fit to your machine.

Experience

Born and raised in the midwest. Started tinkering with engines when I was about 14 on my Suzuki RM-80. I began lawn mower repair at a small hardware store. I knew absolutely nothing. I read lots of repair manuals and met an older fellow who taught me many lessons. I continued working on small engines through high school and paid my way through college working on mowers at the same hardware store. Decided to get away from the midwest and mower repair so I joined the Air Force. I repaired air traffic control electronic equipment and ended up in Hawaii where I got a part time job at Small Engine Clinic. I gained a lot of experience from the Small Engine Clinic and had a blast repairing small engines. I then took the Briggs and Stratton Master Service Technician test and earned my MST. I then traveled to Wisconsin where I attended the factory update training seminar and received formal training. Continued working on mowers part time as I completed 20 years of military. Retired from the military on a Friday and continued in the lawn and garden industry the next Monday.
