My bad, 5 numbers not 6, 101 is the first in the series and took a Briggs, should be around 1961/62, aluminum engine, the model # eludes me at the moment.

 

The 105, last one built has the Tec H35 and had the steel tank, poly tanks were not marketed until the early 70's.

At the moment I just got home, answering emails from customers, cooking supper, wash dishes, need a shower, talk to Mike, pull of leaf blower, fuel that up, string trimmer, mix more fuel, load my snapper.

 

When I have time I will find pictures of my Handimans and pinpoint infos.
