It looks like the gas valve is shut off. That white plastic thing near the carbuertor is the choke. Push to left for full choke--push to the right to run. The plastic air cleaner horn is partially broken away, needs to be fixed. If you shut off the red gas valve, the machine can be tipped up on its nose to access the drive belt and pump. Also remove 4 bolts of the front cover to access the battery and various wires under the hood. A good winter project.
