Try this. From memory on 3 HP line umpity years ago. 82= 1982, 03 = March, 01 = day and 1 means the line it was built on. I believe the "E" number shown was as put on by Briggs. That was almost 20 something years after I left. There were no individual serial numbers, only batch numbers indicated by date and line number. Keep in mind, that in their hey day, almost 60,000 3 HP engines were built in a day and coming mostly from Milwaukee.

I read your thread on the 101, I know the feeling, I was out blowing snow this afternoon with my hb212 (yes I did check the oil) I had just made my last pass and I heard an awful sound and the motor quit. After some looking around I found a 4" crack in the side of the block. I figure it is a good time to repower so I started the removal of the 12hp and get ready to insert the 16hp. I'll get a pic of the 12hp tomorrow.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
