simple search (google) came up with a post from sparky on model/spec numbers....

 

heres 3 with your spec number

 

R1-16O802 1990 316-8 Garden Tractor 8 Speed Onan P216G-I/10976C 
31-16O802 1990 416-8 Garden Tractor 8 Speed Onan P216G-I/10976C 
41-16OE01 1990 416-H Garden Tractor Automatic Onan P216G-I/10976C

 

thread is here.....

 



should be able to determine the year by using the serial number and comparing it to others close that know what year they are. more google searching with close numbers should get you there......

maybe somebody with models that use the same engine could post there serial numbers and year to get you close.

just found this...........

so if we use the guide in the first line your serial number decodes as

 

f893564666

 

MYYxxxxxx

 

f= June

89= 1989

 

Onan serial numbers include a build date (MMYYxxxxxxx)as the first 3 or 4 numerals or in some cases a letter for the month (A=Jan, B=Feb etc)and then 2 digits for the year (MYYxxxxxx).

now if you go back to the list from sparkys post, only 1990 and 1991 models had the C at the end of the spec number......

the engine was made in 1989 and it was installed in a 1990 or 1991 tractor......

 

the last 6 digits ( 564666) would narrow it down further....

Thank you.

 

Is the 921992  the serial number?

 

Is it electronic ignition or points?  Just curious when they went to electronic.
