Date code is located on the shield or sheetmetal cover on the engine itself.Number might be hard to see as it is stamped into the metal.

Welcome to the site!

We all would LOVE to see some pics of the other tractors you have restored Bill!

That is a nice tractor Bill. I have one - hydro? Mine lugs a 48" deck around the yard. I like it a lot for mowing. It's smaller and more nimble than my Sovereign. The cut is great with it too. I found my deck doesn't really adjust high enough though. I cut an additional slot in the adjustment bracket to give it just a bit more lift.

id="quote">
id="quote">The engine was built on January 26, 1988. So depending on how fast the engine left Briggs to when it was installed in your tractor is an educated guess, so we use a 60 day guess. With that in mind your machine was built around Feb-Mar of '88.

You can get electronic manuals for your tractor free from Briggs.

You put your mfr's number into the search box at the Briggs manual site and you'll be able to download 4 manuals - two operators manuals and 2 parts manuals, one each for tractor and engine.

Here's the link for the downloads after I put in your tractor's mfr's number (1691362):

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
