Thanks Guys! The Numbers are as follows: 91760601 As far as I can tell the Serial No. is 2764 . Hope this helps..
It probably don't help most of the other guys, but it put another notch in the puzzle here. I loosely keep track of the numbers to the first three yrs of tractors. Yours falls into the largest group of surviving ones, in the 2000-3000 serial numbers. The numbers go from 1000's to the high 7000's so far. I don't have any way to know what the first or last of the serials are, but everyone I get fills in a gap. So far there only seems to be 3 tractors out there with a number below 2000, Theres mine with 1313, one with 1679, and another in the 1900's. A guy once told me he had 1297, but never would show me a picture of the tag, so I have to say he probably didn't have it. And his tractor was missing a lot of parts. Like a dummy I didn't keep track of what state the models were in, to see if they were sending a whole group of similar numbered models there, or if it was just random. My son and I both have "600" with only 12 numbers separating them, both tractors came from the same Sear store new, according to there original owners.
You will need to find a belt guard sooner or later as the exposed belt will get into your shoe and pants leg, when you aint looking. Finding one will be hard and making one isn't as easy as it looks. Your going to need to find someone with a good pan brake and a hole saw kit to make it look and fit nice. Seems like I sent the measurements out to a fellow in Va once, or might have sent a guard to him that we had repo'd here, but it didn't fit right. I'll have to check on that.
