Determining Part Numbers

What is the part number for the carburetor, coil, piston, crankshaft, etc., for my engine?

This information is contained in your engine's . Engine parts list lookup typically requires the complete Model number and six character Type number (Example: 12H702-0505-E1). Engines built before 1965 may use the model number and first 4 numbers of the serial number.

In order to view the correct Illustrated Parts List and determine the part numbers for your specific engine, you will need your engine's complete Model, Type, and Code numbers.

The numbers listed next to the part illustrations in our IPLs are called Reference Numbers. These numbers are one to four digits in length depending on the part. The Reference Number is used to locate the specific Service Part Number (usually six digits) you will require for ordering purposes.

For clarity, the following examples combine the part illustration and part number list and highlights the different numbers you will need to be aware of. Most of the IPLs will require that you scroll down past the part illustrations to the pages where the Service Part Numbers are located.

All parts illustrated in a Reference Number's frame are included when ordering. In the above example,Reference Number "90" would include all parts shown in the frame (ref. 976, 913, 106, 394, 163, etc. are all included with ref. 90). Reference Number "90" would equate to Service Part Number "790206" which would then be used for ordering purposes.

In many cases, a part may have several Service Part Numbers specific to Type Number and/or Code Number. If you do not find your specific Type Number next to any of the Service Part Numbers, the correct part number for your engine would default to the first (master) Service Part Number listed under that Reference Number.

The only time this may not be the case is if the Code Number also needs to considered in identifying the correct Service Part Number. For a more in depth explanation of our Code Numbers, please visit our What is the age of my engine? When was is made? FAQ.
