The serial number on my Power Ho show tractor is A40461. Care to estimate the year of manufacture?

IF that is the original engine, it may be possible to date the tractor through the engine's Serial number.

 

Post all of the B&S engine numbers - we may be able to help.

I'll guess late 1951 to early 52. 52 was the last year of the round shrouds. With all the tractors I've got and others I've seen that should be close. The best way is to get the numbers off the engine to date it as Bruce said. If the tag is gone take the flywheel off and there will be a 2 digit casting on the back. That would be the year the flywheel was casted.
