For the breaker points and condenser kit, the Wiscon P.N. is YQ-16. Just breaker points is YD-340; just condenser is YD-315-A

Dan, good save there. Hope you get it going. On the tractor #s being unreadable, try looking at an angle with light just right you can some times see them. I like the way the weights attach, what does the part under the weight look like?

There is no part under the weights the bolts go into the lug holes. if you understand what I'm saying.

Dan, the engine would be an S12-D, which is correct for a 1250. The fact that the Spec. No. is different from the factory original and the fact that it is green lead me to believe that you have a replacement engine. The original Spec. No. would have been 281960 for all three years of production.

There were two styles of lift levers for the hydraulic control. The 1967 version was straight after making the bend out of the dash tower. For 1968 and 1969, the lift lever was bent again towards the rear of the tractor, making it easier to grab the lever without banging your knuckles against the dash tower.

Dan, I checked my three 1250's just to be sure on the Spec. No. and found them all to be #281960, just like the literature says they should be.

The engine Must have been replaced not too long after the 1250 was purchased
Mabye the engine blew up a year after it was produced and they threw the 69' in there

I know he will LOVE this tractor. My 1250 is one of my favorites. I just cut the grass for the first time today with it.

I've thought the same with my 1050. And I also think that is a very reasonable guess.
