There should be a number stamped on the shroud somewhere or a metal plate.

Typical Briggs & Stratton

Model Type Code
xxxxxx xxxx-xx yyxxxxxxx

yy indicating the date the engine was manufactured. Take into account the engine might have sat in a warehouse and the mower might have sat around in a store before sold.

Hi Joe, thanks for the information. I just purchased the tractor last week for $75.00. For absolutely NO reason. Although I do presenly have in use a 1987 Sears tractor that was purchased new and has done a lot of work mowing lawns. This one I won't bother to use the mowing deck, just use for towing a trailer around the yard. Make some repairs and paint. Thanks , Murray
