It can be helpful, but I have found to many mistakes on there to even consider it.
Yes it's a 79.

I have the flip side of the problem. I have a 1971 444 Case and the mower deck and tiller have no identifying information on them. No S/N or model number, or anything. How does one go about identifying the model or year in this situation?

Posting tons of pictures of them. From lots of angles. Then we can start this dance:

'That's a J-44!'

'No, Fred; it's a H-40. I had three of 'em, I ought to know!'

'Nah, see that J-hook on top? They only had those on J-44's built on Tuesdays during the summer of '70!'

'Well, Fred; mine had that and it was an H-40.'

'Oh, you're right! I bought it from you, didn't I? Silly me!'

That's roughly how things are done around here. (although not so serious as that, sometimes)

If you have a operators or service manual or a planning guide from the year stated you could very carefully look at the details of the attachments and see if any match yours.
If you have the snap-fast pins and I believe you do then all snap-fast attachments will fit and work up until the four number designation Ingersolls. example 3000 series 4000 series 3016/4016.
I think the first snap-fast attachments started with a G or H. For example. 48" mower decks were H46 and as they changed them they would change the letter. J46, K46, L46, N46 and so on. I believe N would have been the last model number to work on a 3 digit tractor. 444 - 3 digits. the later ones started with SB and they were changed due to the rotation of the engines being different. The engines were turned 180 degrees causing the older attachments to spin backwards so all the attachments were reworked. The mower deck now threw grass out the right side of the deck not the left. I think you get the picture.
The only one that would look odd would be the L series attachments from 1984 as they were all painted Power White and are very hard to find.
1971-72 attachments were "H" lettered but you may have a newer attachment.
Another way is to post several detailed pictures on here and I can look through my manuals and see what we can come up with.
