it says 2/89

I thought this number had to do with the age but i thought it was a little more in the 90's.

I'm thinking that's probably pretty close.

i would have guessed mid to late 80s so 89 makes sense.

It's funny I was reading through the first pages of the manual and it says like "ou have one of the best commercial mowers we offer and if you follow the maintenance instructions it will last you years of cutting" lol

It's still confusing me on why there is no carb adjustment instruction or exploded views. Maybe I need to search the motor numbers not the machine.
In the exploded views it just shows the motor as one unit not broken up showing the various parts.

I would imagine it also came with a supplemental owners manual for the engine when it was new. They were using several engines in that time frame, so they probably would not have had that info in the mower's manual. It's also possible the engine could have been replaced. Find the spec number on the engine and you may be able to find a service manual for it online.

Well here it is, i found a manual for it.
One is a pilot jet (9), which was the one i said was held fastened by the little bracket.
And the one i picture with the weird knobs off of it is the plot screw (8)

But in this diagram and instructions it says it is an idle mixture screw. From where it's pointing (B)
Which is used to obtain a smooth idle rpm.
