Great pics Rudi! A blast from the past.
Looks like an old Wisconsin or Kohler engine powerin the blower unit. Reproducing it isn't the problem....it's reproducing it to satisfy the product liability lawyers is where the problem is !!!

JB, that's the power source for the blower. As Marion said, it appears to be a Wisconsin or Kohler one lunger.

Rudi, Glad the photos workout and you got them posted. Maybe someone can figure out how the drive shaft mated to the engine. Also how wide the blower is. I have been trying to figure that out since I got the photos. :D

OK, Thanks Bigdog. Now that I took a second look I see the gas tank & what looks to be a rope pull start. I think I can see the small drive-shaft going underneath also. It must have a carrier bearing somewhere in the middle or that distance could maybe cause it to do some whipping.

Judging from the way the tractor sits behind the blower, I would think that it is around 4 feet wide.
