Snapper Model number help?

Hello, I recently bought an old snapper rear engine rider. But I can't figure out the model number so I can buy parts. Hopefully someone can help me figure out the year and model number. There are no stickers or labels anywhere on it(exept the engine). The blad e measures 30 " and the deck is 33" Here are some pictures. Thanks

It's old, looks like the engine has been replaced, the id tag should be on the frame under the seat on the left side, it may have been painted over. Have a good one. Geo
PS: I noticed you have the dogs trying to sniff out the model numbers. lol

After a little research;
Go to Snapper.com, select the Manuals tab, enter 25* for model number, scroll down, the series 3 25083s IPL looks like it will cover your mower, maybe not the engine. Have a good one. Geo

Might want to try geo's suggestion with 30* instead of 25* since you know you have a 30 inch mower. Not much difference between the two, unless of course you want the part number for the rear tires or blade...

25083 denotes a 25" deck with an 8hp engine and a series 3

30* doesn't seem to pick up the manual for series 1,2,3, I tried that first, where 25* picks up blade lengths to 33 in. Have a good one. Geo

Ok, now I see what you mean... I was only going after the series 3 not 1 or 2 and I was not looking beyond the manuals for the 25...

OH these things are mean little devils. I had a friend that had one, the friction drive was wore pretty good so I adjusted it a bit, that thing would pop wheelies like you wouldnt believe. He put some ape hangers on it with a throttle like a motorcycle. Oh the memories of these. Had to lean over the front so it would steer. LOL There fun little machines.

They are pretty amazing little machines, if they just had more blade speed. The Snapper manual says the clutch is properly adjusted when it "won't" do a wheelie in 5th gear from start (lol). How that little spinning doughnut can do what it does is amazing. Have a good one. Geo

Yea, I can't wait to get this one going. It came with a 8hp engine (I think) and now has a 12hp industrial/commercial Synchro-Balanced engine, so it should have some power.

LOL I kinda figured that, unfortunately he seen what it was doing and he liked it. So it stayed that way for a long time. A few summers later, the old engine started to give up, wisconsin robin I think is what was on it. The intake seat started popping out so I put it back in and peened it there. Still running.

snapper

I have the same model Snapper with a 8 horse Briggs. I found a wire coming out from under the flywheel that produces 30 VAC. I figured it was to charge the battery but if I connect it directly to the battery wont it drain the battery with engine off? I think I'm missing a regulator. Any help would be appreciated.
