Small Engine Problems? Ask an Engine Mechanic for Answers ASAP
-Could you explain your situation a little more?
I know that you said the serial number is XXXXX
But can you provide me the Model number of the rider..
In fact any and all numbers off the plate would be helpful..
Also the serial number of the engine
Using model LEV115-57010B, serial 8105C as an
example, interpretation is as follows:
LEV115-57010B is the model and specification number
LEV Low Emissions Vertical
115 Indicates a 11.5 cubic inch displacement
57010B is the specification number used for properly
identifying the parts of the engine
8105C is the serial number
8 first digit is the year of manufacture (1998)
105 indicates calendar day of that year (105th day
or April 15, 1998)
C represents the line and shift on which the
engine was built at the factory
The TVM 140 is a 6 HP engine..
The model and serial number info on the rider would go a long way to determining the decade the rider was made in..
Also, the instruction book may have a date on the back cover..
Thanks for the neutral feedback.. I am somewhat offended.
I was not done answering your question...
I asked for the Model number AND serial number of teh rider.
You Did not provide me both..
Without Both I was not able to Get a copy of the manual for you (which is what I intended to do)..
I only had the model and spec of the engine.. Not both for the rider.. Did you forget?
I was working hard to help, and was giving you the best information I could based on the Incomplete answers you gave me..
With all do respect James I provided you with the numbers on the rider. You need to re-read my response to your request for further information. The numbers on the snapper rider is Model # XXXXX Serial #73008655. If you did not receive that information I am sorry, but when I replied to you confirmed receiving by replying back to me with your answer.
The 25066 or 25066s Units were not made in 1977 and production on them had stopped before 1997..
So we must assume that the engine was manufactured in 1987.
The unit engine was most likely put on a 1988 version of the snapper mower...
I have seen several references to the 1989 version of the 25066, so I pretty sure That Yours was made for the 1988 Model Year.
It was Easy to track down Not that I have all the information that I asked for including the model and serial number of the rider..
