The owner that I purchased this tractor from had told me that it was a 1974 model year with a Tecumseh engine. However, it actually has the Briggs and Stratton so wouldn’t that make it a 1976-77 model year instead?
Thank you for that information Bruce! My engine is also missing the front blower housing cover which I believe would have had the model number listed. Any idea as to what model of B&S engine that I have if it is original?Model 1055-01 was built for 1973 & 1974 and had a Tecumseh engine.
Model 1055-02 was built for 1975 and had a Tecumseh engine.
Model 1055-03 was built for 1976 and had a B&S engine.
Model 1055-04 was built for 1977 and had a B&S engine.
I believe your serial number beginning with 04 indicates your tractor is a 1055-04, so that would be a 1977 model.
