#664250=cover driver housing,
#707910=belt, drive
#672667=pulley, driven

Answer
Limited options:
1)  Ebay
2)  Call a larger warehouse

I'd start by calling Oscar Wilson.  They are a large warehouse and vast network.  We have had success with them in the past.

You can also call or email MTD.  MTD owns a large portion of the outdoor power equipment industry.  They bought Lawn/Snow Chief (General Power) and Atlas many years ago.

I found a couple of parts (below).  I would verify the pulley is still available before doing anything else.  The rectifier and belt can be sourced (purchased) from other suppliers. You could make a cover if absolutely necessary.

$25.95   672667 pulley, driven          http://www.lawnmowerpros.com/detail.asp?id=672667
$46.95  630012 rectifier          http://www.lawnmowerpros.com/detail.asp?id=630012

Cover fits this model as well...according to the part number...AW15ELM-SCW15ELM
Would it be cheaper to purchase a new snow thrower?  Toro makes a decent electric snow shovel as well as snow blowers.

Let me know if the pulley is still available and I will check for cheaper priced rectifiers.

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.
