SOURCE: decoding a serial number
I am pretty good but single year serials are beyond my expertise (black on silver or silver on black sn tag is one key). Husqvarna Contact Us: UShttp://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/customer-support/ HusqvarnaUSA.com
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/ Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
Looking at the availabl IPLs it could be 87 or 97. They will help with decode. Lets let the real experts help. LOL

Testimonial: "thanks for your help. the links you provided were helpfull. now ill be able to get some parts and start rippin."
It is a YZ80D 1977...first link below is a Yamaha VIN cross reference if you want to verify. (a lot of scrolling)
As your VIN is only 9 digits, this indicates a pre 1982, when a universal 13 digit VIN was adopted, then soon after our current 17 digit VIN.
(please note: I'm assuming the VIN is from the plate on frame and not the crankcase serial number as engines are easily swapped)
Second link appeared amongst a search and indicates a 1992 model. This may be the basis of the problem your encountering.
Third link is a Yamaha decoder I've used successfully (17#) try it or check the Yamaha Corp. link therein.
