DH1:  Do you have a picture of the right side of the ring starter style tracter you posted earlier??  Reason I ask is my tractor, while not having the long lever on the left side,  mine does have an opening on the deck that would appear to have had one there  at one time.  Also in that picture I  see a black knobed lever in lower middle directly below steering wheel Mine has that, but no indication what it is for.

 

Early model S/G right side

I see you have an attachment there, meaning you DID upload something... But it looks as if it may have been deleted.

This can happen if you use the back button and then resubmit the post.

Nice looing machine there.

Here you can look up the year.

 

Looks like the choke cable may be got too close to the exhaust pipe, and

melted the liner.

Yep, you're right, the OEM SN tag is missing.

The serial of the engine may be a good clue. I will look into it, I remember someone being able to translate those...
(If you are "someone" please pipe up!)

I found several references to decoding the sn... Just not the format you have.

Could you verify that is all the numbers on the tin?

Your tractor has the round muffler, if that's the type of muffler that it came with then your tractor is a 68 to 71 model.

  It appears that is it.  It's in a very tough spot to see/read it all.  It's on the engine itself.  Is this # just for the engine??

Yep, what we're trying to do is narrow that 4 yr window down some for you.

Earlier I posted what I believed to be the Model # and Serial # for my MF 10. I believe I now have the correct #s.

 

  Model # hh100-1150978   S#- 88108116.  These are located on a metal tag riveted to front engine shroud, right behind the fuel line where it exits the shroud and connects to the carb.

 

  I'm hoping someone can I.D. the year based on these #'s. 

 

  Also, the starter I purchased for this doesn't seem to be a proper fit.  Are both bolts that secure it to the block the same size??  The rubber hood that covers the post on the starter that extends to the fly wheel:  Does this get removed before installation??

 

   Once again, I thank much for your help!!

In the model number, could you look one more time at the ending "8"? That might actually be a letter. I see references to hh100-115097 d, c, e but no 8

Welcome and good luck with the machine. My 12H has a 72 stamped on the rear axle. Not sure if that will help.
