Well, it looks old! I'd say maybe early 70's at the latest, maybe earlier because of the steel gas tank, haven't seen those in years.

You'll probably have to find a old small engine shop with paper books, doubt there is much on the web on those, but you never know...

Here's the best I could find. (Scroll down to the code table)

https://www.jackssmallengines.com/ja...l-locator.aspx

According to that ^^^ info... it's 8 cubic inches, built in 1968.

3 HP is pretty weenie for a rototiller, unless it's a very small machine...

I didn't think about it being too small.

It'd be good for a minibike, for small people. (Your sidekick for example.)

5HP would be better for bigger kids, or adults who don't want to go anywhere fast...

My old man had a Wizard tiller he bought new back in around 66 that came with a 3hp Briggs. When it finally wore out, he replaced it with a 4hp one. The 3hp looked about like the one you have Billy.
