If you look at the manual you should be able to narrow down the year by the serial no.

They were only made from 42 to 47, I know you can make the serial number visible using ferric chloride? It is a heavy acid, etches copper fast, and will bring out a stamp in metal. The PD uses it all the time on guns and such. If you know where the serial is, you can read it. I don't know if you can buy less than a pound of the stuff, maybe. If not , let me know, I have a lab here, all kinds of stuff. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I recently bought a Craftsman
Usually the quickest way to date lawn tractors is to look for the date code (Briggs and Stratton) or the D.O.M. (Tecumseh) for example. So on a Briggs engine there is a long three part series of numbers: model; type; and code. The code is the date code and the first two digits are the last two digits of the year made, the next two are the two digit month, followed by the next two which are the two digits for the day. This is how I get a decent idea of the age of a mower, assuming the original engine is on the machine of course. If you have a Tecumseh engine, it has a four digit DOM before 2004 and a five digit from 2004 on. The first digit of the four digit version is the last digit of the year. From 2004 on with the five digit the first two digits represent the last two digits of the year. Either way with Tecumseh engines the last three digits would be the day of the year. For example a Tecumseh engine 05222 would have been made on August 10, 2005. If you have a Kohler, I am not sure about that one as I have not had to date one yet, but the vast majority of the engines I deal with for Craftsman, including my own are Briggs and Stratton.
I hope you find this helpful.
