White Equipment 1997-ish Snow Boss 850

Can anyone tell me, offhand, which Tecumseh engine is used on my 1997-ish Snow Boss 850?  It's not here, or I would just check the label.
 
Thank you.

Some scientists claim that hydrogen because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.

    Many OEMs consider engines and for the most transaxles as separate equipment. In my 10 yrs of professionally repairing various small engine equipment I seldom see the engine info include in the IPLs and even if it is it may not even be right as they can which engine they use.
     
    What is even worst is the use of the newer sticker label that fade, get damage, or just completely lost. This why I record every customer's equipment numbers including serials that I can find. Sometime all you can is hope the labels are not lost or unreadable like the Troy-bilt pressure I got in Friday; I got the engine info but can not find a label nowhere for the pressure washer main assembly.

    Thanks.  My guess is that it's an HSSK50, but I'll find out later today when I go to my other property where the snowblower is located.

    I forgot to get the engine details, but it turns out that it's an 8 HP, so it is not a HSSK50.

    Probably.  I'm going there again tomorrow and I'll find out for sure.  Thank you.

    I am not finding an HSSK80.  Could you mean the HMSK80, per chance?
