I am the new owner of a model 240 that I am attempting to fix up for my grandfather for simple transporation around the farm stead instead of walking or buying a golf cart. The model/serial tag/sticker is beat all to shreds on the backend. I am wondering if there is any other area of the tractor where the serial number may be coming from the factory for identification purposes as well as maintenance. I do not have a deck which is how I wanted it. I just tend to be a person who likes to know exactly what he has in order to at least talk half-way intelligent about his machine.

Thank you for your time in viewing and any and all responses.

Welcome to GTTAlk. The engine may have a ser. No. as well. That ser.No. could get you the engines date of manufacture. The chassis is usually only tagged in one spot but I am not familiar with the 240. If you are wondering about parts changes with ser. No. you could go to JDParts.com and look at the parts diagrams. Where there are differences it is indicated in the partslists. From a careful look at the differences and comparing with what you have you should be able to narrow down the year.
