side discharge chute for classic aluminum snapper

Hi folks, after googling around a bit it seems like the people here have some good knowledge of snapper mowers. A friend of mine gave me a classic snapper push mower, no idea of the age but I'm guessing the 70's or 80's. He's kept it in great shape, rebuilt the carbs, converted it to electric ignition, etc. The body is pretty rough but if it mows, it'll do better than my plug in mower on my new larger yard.

Problem is, it only has a bagger. This will be great for the fall when I need to get rid of leaves, but not so ideal the rest of the year when the large yard would require emptying it maybe a dozen times when mowing. From what I've found, these mowers don't handle mulching that well and my best bet is to go for side discharge, however in searching around all I can find are side discharge chutes for the newer steel deck mowers.

So, does anyone have any idea where I could get a side discharge chute for this thing? Or if I'm not calling it the right thing, what I should search for when looking?

You appear to have a V21 series Snapper, which is pre-1980. The side discharge chute is sheet metal and is now p/n 7060287. Sold on internet for $55 to $65.
