Small Engines (Lawn Mowers, etc.)/Snow eater by Rickel 3/20

Question
Where can I find a manual or information on a Snow eater by Rickel 3/20.  It's model # is 20300600, code 9242 m. Serial # 121712. I'd like to order a part for it.  The side cover which protects the belts is missing.  Thank you.

Answer
Most likely Rickel was made by another company like Murray, MTD, Noma...

Most of the old equipment manufacturers are no longer in business.  Murray and Noma closed years ago but the Murray name is now owned by Briggs and Stratton who are still in business.

You can Google Rickel 3/20 Snow Eater and search for pictures that might lead you to a manual.  I found a couple.

You can attach a picture and I can try to identify the manufacturer.

I researched Rickel stores and see they closed in the 90's so odds of finding a part through Rickel may be next to impossible.

I searched Ebay and did not find any Rickel parts.

Did you Google Murray 5355-0400?

This may be the part number Murray 57036MA.

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.
