Hi everyone, I hope one of you can help me identify the year of a super 12 that

was given to me. It was repainted and most of the tags are covered in gloppy black paint.

Enclosed are some pics, one of the things that stood out to me was that the choke is a

push button plunger verses a pull out type on the instrument pannel. I'm thinking its a

1968 year, it has the light blue paint under the gloppy black. It has a 7 horse Briggs on it

which is definately not correct, but its a freeby.

 

Thanks in advance......

1968 Super

 

Although it has the '69 style dash.  I think they made them both ways as I've seen other '68s with that dash.

My '68 Super has the older style dash.  ???

On the metal tag in front of the shifter should be a model number. Post that number if its there and we can decode it for you.

Its not from an Allis Grumpy. That is a aluminum small block 7 hp engine. Allis used the big block cast Iron model 19 and 19D in the B1,then went bigger from there to the cast iron model 23D (9hp) in the Big 10,then the 24 cubic inch cast iron 10hp,etc.as the models progressed through the years.

Thanks everyone, I figured it was a 68. Its a non starter right now, its a real wiring mess.

This week I'm going to sort that out then fire it up and see what I have. If the gear box is

in good shape I will replace a few tires and do some maintenance and try to find a mower

deck for it. Then a replacement 12 or 13 horse motor.
