Most B&S engines of that style had a model, type, and code number stamped into the sheetmetal flywheel shroud. ....The location of these numbers changed thru the years. ....The numbers could be on the front surface above the flywheel opening, on the top flat part near the sparkplug, or on the carburetor side of the shroud (aka blower housing) either on the upper flat portion or the lower curved portion.
Your tractor is a Bolens model 900 or a Bolens model 1000. ...The 900's were produced in 1964 & 1965. ....The 1000's were a 1965 model.
