How do I find engine manufacture date?

Updated 8 months ago by Scott Henning

Each Champion Power Equipment engine has a serial number engraved into the side of the crank case — to the right of the recoil. The Date of Manufacture (DOM) indicator on pre-2011 Champion Power Equipment engines may be found within the engines serial number. You can decipher your DOM as follows:

First two digits = Year

Second two digits = Month

Example: 1008 = August 2010

How did we do?
