1st 700 made?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know how they coded serial numbers? Maybe the first of the 4 digits is the number of years in production...in other words, 1 is 1st production year, 8 would be the 7th production year...

Just spitballing here...I don't know how long the 700 series was in production.

Some of the parts books have serial number breaks while keeping the same product number. My best guess is that every new product number started at 1001 and stopped the day they started a new product number.

Whether it is a early model or not, I still like it. It has the original bolt together deck, so I mow with it periodically, but mostly just to drive around. I blew snow with it once, did fairly well for how wet the snow was.

      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.
