Identifying Engines

The model name is printed on the engine cover or the recoil starter cover. It always starts with the letter “G.” The serial number is stamped into the side of the engine. The serial number always has a 4-5 letter prefix followed by a dash and a 7 digit number.

Briggs & Stratton and Vanguard
The model, type and code are always etched in that order on a metal part of the engine. Depending on the model, these numbers are either next to the muffler, on a valve cover, or on the top front of the engine. You may need to remove the engine cover to see them.

The model and serial number are printed on the side of the flywheel housing, just opposite of the dipstick.


The model and serial number can be found on a large silver label on the engine cover.

Identifying Other Components

Hydro-Gear Hydrostatic Transmissions
The model information is printed on a label located on the transaxle case. The top left number is the model, the bottom left number is the serial, and the top right number is used for cross-referencing.

CAT Pumps
The model number is printed on the metal tag on top of the pump. The serial number is printed on the bottom of the case.

AR Pumps
The model label is on the top of the pump. Look for a number next to “Nr.” on the model tag. The first three numbers are the pump series. The rest of the numbers make up the serial number. The following four numbers are the week and year of production. The next four numbers make up the progressive number, the production number for that week. On newer models, there are 5 more numbers for the manufacturing code.
