The snow has melted and I was finally able to check out the serial numbers on the 1253's and the HT23.

 

1253-01 (bought new by my dad from Lakewood Hardware & Appliance Center in Lakewood, NJ in 1970)

Tractor S/N: 58314

Engine: HH120-120090C

Engine S/N: 9253 08194 or possibly 0016 08220 (original engine is currently out of tractor, but tins (w/serial #) have been swapped around)

 

1253-02 (I bought this used from someone in South Jersey)

Tractor S/N: 61231

Engine: HH120-120045D (not sure if this is original to the tractor)

Engine S/N: 2301E

 

1253-02 (FWIW: this is a rear panel (w/tractor serial #) from a parted out tractor that I bought as a replacement for the butchered one on the 1253-02). I thought it might be useful for your research.)

Tractor S/N: 60330

 

HT23 (2389-01)

Tractor S/N: 0102013 (this S/N matches one on your list! How did you come across this serial number?)

Engine: K582S-36328 (Not the original engine. The new engine was installed 8/23/2001.)

Engine S/N: 2427303515 (New engine S/N. Original engine S/N unknown)

 

I was looking through the documentation provided by the previous owner of the HT23 and came across a handwritten shopping list of a number of used tractors, this being one of them. It is designated as a 1982 model on the list. Does that sound correct? I thought it was manufactured earlier than that. Can you determine the actual year of manufacture from the serial number?
