|CNKS said: (quoted from post at 18:51:42 01/23/13) 559 is a 1954 model. See if you can find a casting code on the clutch housing, The letter should be A for 54, meaning the casting was replaced. The serial tag could also have been replaced. The tag could also be a 55 if you can find another number after the 9. To be a 56 it has to have 1 as the first number and another number following the 9. If the 559 is very clear, then you have a different casting.[/quote:060fa21b8a]|
I thought '54 is Z and '55 was A.
[quote:060fa21b8a="Jim Becker"](quoted from post at 19:29:19 01/23/13) Most likely you have misidentified a 130 as a 100. 130 number 559 was built in November 1956. You casting dates all agree with that build date.
Sounds most logical right now since it is covered in Bs. This post was edited by sflem849 at 06:16:26 01/24/13.
