Newbie with questions, White GT 1855

I am a brand newbie with a couple of questions. First off, My Son in Law up in NY State,(I am in Florida) has a White, GT 1855, I think a 1995 model. Where is the model number and serial number plate so I can find out what it is? He is not too mechanical, so I am going to try and repair it. I was just up there a few days ago for a couple of days. Right now I just want to know exactly what it is so I can get a manual, wiring diagram, and parts list. I do know it is a beast with a 3 point hitch, and a B&S 18 hp Vanguard V twin engine. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks in advance, Kim

I love my GT-1855. I grew up with it over the years, was 12 or so when we got it and I'm 32 today and have it.

Some parts are hard to come by or are starting to be hard to find. My dealer when we bought it put calcium in the rear tires and eventually ate through the rims. The tires and rims are are discontinued and impossible to find. I lucked into finding a GT-2055 with a blown engine and bought it for 300.

The model on my GT-1855 is under the seat on the tractor, centered between the brackets for the seat. The GT-2055 I got for parts I never could find it, they have a different seat on it and I think it was on the seat itself or something as I looked the whole tractor over and nothing.

The engine, the serial on mine is on the left side of the engine if your sitting on the tractor. Its by the sparkplug to the front on a medal strip I believe.

Here is probably the manual:

Oh be careful if you have the 50" deck and ordering the spindles and blade adapters. For some reason if you order the correct part number they send you half inch versions instead of the 1" version you need.

I think these are correct but double check before using if they are needed:
748-0300 1" Blade Adapter
918-0118 1" Spindle Assembly
