Well, from the fender pan, it's either a 900 or 1000.

Here's the page from the tube frame service manual that tells you where the data tag 'should' be.

If your tractor still has it, that will tell the tale:

Oh Awesome Man!! thank you for that. now hopefully those numbers are still on my tractor lol.

Welcome aboard 'Newb88',I haven't been around long but I'm learning more everyday!You seem to have some valuable things: passion and willingness,as far as the rest,the Guys here will likely help fill in the blanks.My early guess is,(once you get positive ID)you may soon be on the road to scout a good deal on another GT to make your baby whole again.Investigate and stay calm throughout.Good luck!

I will bow to your superior knowledge.

But, please tell me what 'tells you' that it's a 1000 :confuse:

You can see from the pictures it has a "Double belt" PTO and a parking brake which would indicate the 6 speed transmission.

Of course that is assuming that everything is original on it.

It is pouring down rain here at our place but I still went out to check the seat pans on my 900 and 1000. I thought they were the same because I had just switched seats to go to Plow Day. Obviously that was not the clue we should have followed. Once again Brian proves that he has a keen eye when it comes to pictures. Good work Brian.

If I'm not mistaken. The 1000 is a 6 speed and the 900 is a 3 speed. Same "H" shift pattern, but the 1000 had a hi/lo selector giving you: first, second, and third in low range; and first, second, and third in hi range. Good luck with your tractor. :thumbs:
