That's the Snapper S/N, I suspect that the 1st digit, "1", is 1981, and the 2ed is the month, "4" is Apr.

 

The engine S/N will be on a metal plate on the engine. With that vintage Onan, the letter is the month, the next 2 digits is the year. 

If it is still there, it's on the top of the blower sheet metal under the throttle linkage.

Sorry about the mix up.  The model number on metal tag to engine reads:  ?48M-GA  018/3421A.  The serial number reads:  F793471706.

I would suggest digging information for John Deere mowers from the 4xx series (and may be the 3xx series?) they are shaft driven, should have the 1" 15T splines and I think could fit with reasonable modifications. I guess the only thing would be to verify the rotation direction of the input shaft as JD are driven from the rear of the tractor as your's is from the front of the tractor.

 

To me the advantage to JD's accessories is the ease to find them, the "low" price and availability of the parts.

Let me correct myself.  I would like to actually use the 3 point and rear pto to run a bush hog or mower deck of some kind versus the belly mower.  I have been reading posts and sorry to say I'm lost when I start hearing that I would have to find a rear deck that runs on 2000 rpm.

That is true, the front PTO is "standard", a stupid way of telling it's running at the same speed as the engine (3600rpm at full throttle) and the rear PTO is a bit reduced to 2000rpm. You could make yourself some kind of gear/chain reduction to get it to lets say 540rpm. There was even an OEM accessory for this purpose but it's probably super rare.

Thanks, this fits perfect.

The engine was built June 1979, and the tractor Apr 1981.
I have another just after yours, tractor S/N 1 4 23 5863 and engine S/N B80 3 508 780.

And my 1983 version has the same engine spec as you have.

Wonder why the 3 point arms are pointed inside instead of out?

I have looked up that OEM accessory and yes it is rare.  From what I've been reading it is nearly impossible to use the 3 point lift with this accessory.

I don't know of any cat.0 implements that run at 540rpm. I'm sure it was for farmers to run a grain auger and such. Just my .02 cents. I've only came across 3 for sale. I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time to score one.

Have you bought it in Canada or imported?

 

Do you have pictures of it? Of how it looks installed on the tractor?

I'm betting they had a bunch of old Sears attachments, and this way it would hook up to them.
