i would guess it at a 1972 if it has the starter/ generator. 1973 if it doesnt.

I have a 73 with starter gen on it. Are you saying you have a 72 tag on tractor with 16hp Briggs?

Yours is a 73 with 72 motor. That's why motor dating just puts you in ballpark of dating tractors. I do like the look of the round fenders.

1973's had full running board's,1971's had foot rests like yours but not 16hp,so I'm thinking late 72 or early 73, second tractor is next model so something like 75-77

Has anyone seen or heard of a front scoop not sure if it's bad etiquette. But asked about a front scoop on another site this is the reply::::OK, I'll give Martie an early New Years gift and go to bat......

PLEASE think about your question a bit more before you make a request... no one knows what you're talking about without some basic info!

Tractor - Model? Year? Serial # ( prob the most important! the first two can be known from the serial)
Front Scoop?? are you talking about the blade? Or maybe the loader?
Support plate?? I'm guessing the attachment adapter...but I'm guessing....

and least but not last...who are you and WHERE are you?? This basic request was made clear when you joined the group - location!!........ Thanks you all for the info and help !!!ps my name is Jim and I live in oregon next to casino. Thanks again and happy New year. Casinojim

Good looking tractor. I have a hydraulic pump that came off one of these. Could you get me the diameter (close) of the pulley driving the pump? I want to keep that ratio right when I use it.
