Need to id an old Briggs 8hp motor with no shroud

I was given an old Eatons Viking riding lawn mower years ago. I have not been able to get the shroud (top cover) for it. It has an electric start and also it had a long pull cord going all of the way back to the dash by the steering wheel with the looks of it. This was missing when I obtained it.

I did take some photos of it if that would help. It is close to an old 1970 MTD Park Hill 8-34.

It may be 191707 ? This is now going to be a school rebuild project for a 17 year old in shop class. I could replace the motor but I found out that it will still run but the person never checked out the safty switches and gave up on fault finding.
I am going to need an assortment of old parts if anyone has them also. I would like to keep it original if possable.
