Only number I see on my S7 (yes, it's a S& not a S7-D) is AA-103 which is stamped in the crank case but it doesn't show up in the link provided as a valid number?

Your engine was Made January 1962

The number to the right of the S7 is the serial Number.

Your Tractor is a 1963

beating a dead horse but framesteer's engine had the sheetmetal replaced i think , because the tfd only turned 1800 rpm and fired odd so if his engine ran a groundskeeper properly it's a thd in in sheeps clothing running at 3400-3600

Thanks for pointing us back in the correct direction 29 Chev. I was able to navigate to the working page for the serial number lookup. Here's the new link:

http://www.wiengines..._serial_search/

I have a model AB that I picked up at a yard sale several years back and I've always wanted to know what year it was produced. Turns out it was manufactured in April of 1946.

It worked for me on Dec 23/2015. I get January 1967 on my s12d. Seems early for a 197-02?

When you put in any serial number after 1953 into that website it always comes out as a January engine.  It's a very good possibility that your engine could of been made much later in 1967.

What's the difference between  SPEC. #

 

  and ser. #

 

     My SPEC. #  says it was made in 1970

 

     My serial #  says it was made  in   1943                                   This is on a 1973    1477  LG...

I ran 12 serial numbers today and all but one came back as January except one was june of 1984. I also mis entered one number and forgot one digit at the end of the number and it cam back as jan of 1954 when the actual number cam back as jan of 1968. I think that they have grouped all serial numbers from a particular year and call it jan of that year instead of actually listing each month individually.
