Day 280 of a decade ending in zero. The decade I can't say without a photo.I would like to know what year a tractor was made.
The model number is 917-25452
The serial number is 2800S55674
Thanks for any information in advance, Junkking
Yes, normally a year before the tractor date, My 2001 Murray has a 2000 Briggs. We know it's a 1980 or 1990 or even a 2000 by the serial, so the engine being 2 years off will still give us a d.o.m. on the tractor, assuming its never been repowered.Ja, but the engine would have been built before the rest of the tractor. My '05 tractor has an '04 engine. I heard of tractors where the engine was 2 years older.
I think the bug is already in me. I looked at the penny saver today and there is a cub cadet in there for 100 dollars the owner says it needs a crank shaft. I dont believe the crank shaft is broken from what he described. I think it is a connecting arm which from reading are aluminum turning on a cast iron crank shaft. It would take alot for that aluminum connecting arm to break a cast crank unless the motor was running at an extremely high rpm when the connecting arm broke and jammed into it. The crank may need a little emery to clean it up but I am still going to see it tomorrow.Cool, I was only off by 11 years with my guess lol.
