From this info, you can not get a date of manufacture. You need to post the DOM number which is found in the same area as the model & serial number.

Back then, both TC and B&S used a Julian date as the S/N. So yours could be 1979, 1989 or 1999. I doubt it's older, but you get the point.

Found one last week , New in the box .
Nice. When I worked for a Central, we had a distributor go out of bus. in Nyack, NY in the mid-90's. He still had brand-new Clinton engines in the box. Never know what you'll find out there!
FYI Tecumseh went belly-up, in Feb. 2009 Engine Division assets were bought by Certified Parts Corp. (CPC).
HH120 if taken care of will should last decades.

FYI if you're interested...CPC re-introduced engines made by LCT (Chinese) under Lauson brand name.
BTW Husqvarna bought the Peerless line of transmissions/gearboxes and continues to mfg. many of the same products such as T-boxes.
