I have help for you in locating where your serial number is stamped on the chassis. Most are stamped on the top of the transmission housing.

This is how it looks on a 81,20, 22, 21 (colt) and 23 (mustang)
On models with a PTO the oval plate will have a switch lever.



Here is where it is at on the 101r's, 101 Seniors and 101 Juniors. sitting on the seat it is just to the left of the PTO lever.



This is where it is on the 30, 33, 44, 333, and 444 Sitting on the seat it is just to the left of the PTO input lever. On the 333 and 444 sheet metal may have to be moved. My 44 br# b is for butane r is for rowcrop.

Your Massey Harris 30 is by my serial number list a 1950.
It has a 162 Cont. L head engine uses gas for fuel and a narrow front end.
Your Number probably reads 30GR967 and one more number.

To be a 1946 your serial number would have to read 30GS 1001. It would have a wide front end and sit low standard style. Same engine as above.

How about a 135? I bought one yesterday and the data tag say FG 21311, but from what I could find on the internet, I still can't figure out the year. To be honest, it looks like a 135, but not sure about that either.

Any help would be appreciated,

Hey, Alleyyooper:
If you keep pulling those Harris's out of the weeds, one of them bees might bite you!
Ran across your post yesterday on the M/H stamped serial number locations. Used it last night on my 30 and behold, found it.
Would you have any information as to where to look on the M/H Ponies for the stamped numbers??
Good Post
Many Thanks,

How about the MF202's? I have four holes where the number plate used to be on the dash. It's a Z134 gas engine.
