yea I am leaning more to that assumption too,,he said he would get me the serial numbers in a day or so,,will see what he sends
You won't be able to find the serial number tag on that tractor. They have covered it (or taken it off and covered the area) with the new white side panels with louvers????? It is a 154 lo boy, first run of the numbered series. 15-hp tractor with manual pto clutch. Below is a photo of the last one I had, which is of the same vintage, around 1973/1974. You can just make out the serial number tag on mine, on the top of the frame straight down from the exhaust outlet and below the throttle/governor arm (the arm is pointing right at the serial number plate). Also note the correct grill which is the same as your photo above.

tks for all the input,,I am still trying to find out more about it,,even if I decide to make the trade I have no money involved in the one I own so even if its a 154 or 185 or a different parts hybrid 184 its still will be free to me,,unless I find out it is stolen ,,,,if stolen it will go to the police,,thats why I am waiting on a serial number,,I just wish people wouldn't try to cover up and make it something its not he could get good money out of it as original,,thats why I fear it stolen,,he has it on Craigslist for $2300 by the way

I would try to negotiate that price down. I gave $2500 for a 184 with a 3-point hitch and a creeper and a 3160A mower deck that looked to be in similar paint condition. I think that I overpaid for my tractor.
