Actually someone just said its most likely a "0" not a "c" cause it was hand stamped making it 40977 for the serial number.

Hi Guys, Apologies for jumping on this thread but the heading looked right and I hope I will catch the relevant people ;-)
I am trying to help somebody determining the year of manufacture of two 3Hp Witte engines. Both closed crank jobs with serial numbers 101828 & 977300. I have searched everywhere but can't find any reference except "Wendel's Notebook" which I do not have. I was hoping to download it somewhere but nowadays everybody wants money ;-)
Any assistance will be appreciated.
Regards

Serial number 101828 was made in 1943
Serial number 977300 is way too high a number. It does not appear to be a Witte number.

Thank you very much. He gave me the serials and pictures of the serials but I can not read them anyway. I will ask the guy for a closer picture.

Received a closer pic of the tag. I think the last character should be J for Witte Type J. I guess the serial should be 97730J then.

Thank you. Much appreciated. I only restore engines which are older than me and I always want to know what year an engine is and found many owners have no idea.
