AX engine dating, Please help

I know you can see on the Tecumseh engines the Date of manufacture but how about on the newer AX engines made by LCT, Have a 24" Deluxe but the label was missing for the exact model and trying to date it to see which model it is exactly for parts as I am not sure of the differences and want to order the right ones.

The numbers off the engine.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

The bottom number is your serial number and here is what it tells you:

LCT Serial Number Definition

The engine serial number consists of 11 to 12 alphanumeric characters (example: 08 60H 02 03611)

First two digits = year produced
Next two to three digits = year produced
Next two to three digits = engine horsepower
Next two digits = months produced
Last five digits = sequence number of engine

So for your machine: Date of production is March 2016, 7.5HP.
The model number is PW6HK17750 178E-ABGILOQUVX59E1M

Well that is helpful, also found out they changed the panel under the dash from the orange oval Ariens to the gray with white letters so I would say I have a 2017 model, Will sell my heavily modded SnoTek 24 and will cover the cost of parts so other than the labor this was a free upgrade and the SnoTek is getting its 208cc with alternator added put back on and the 254cc will be on a shelf, Or maybe sell to fund the SHO engine lol I canít just leave things as they are.
