Engine #s are usually stamped into a flat machined place on the block just under the head, not sure which side though. Hope that helps.

They are on the right side front of the block, right near and under the #1 plug on the flat machined surface. Be advised that the block method does not always pan out because so many where changed out through the years.

The earlier ones the number stamped there is the serial number of the tractor. The later ones it is more of a engine serial or something. Cause i have some that i know the engine has never been swaped and the two dont match. I think bouncer is right abot the location.

They serial number on the tractor and the engine did not always match at the factory. They assembled the next part in line and it was not always the right one. Most are correct however not all of them are. What I was pretty much referring to in my post is if they are off by years, instead of just a few numbers.
