910995 is the model number of the bucket attachment only, not the model number of the snowblower.
The model number of the snowblower will be at the rear of the machine, on another Ariens tag same as the one on the side of the bucket.
Also, if you can see a Tecumseh data tag on the side of the engine, post the numbers on that tag too..The Tecumseh serial number contains a date code.

The ID plate for your machine will look a little different but this is the place it should be. Might also be stamped into the metal.
The engine ID is on the top of the flywheel shroud and might be under the electric starter switch if yours is so equipped.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

The tractor code is 910006. I can’t check the engine because it’s a predator 212

Thats a 1972 or 1973 model 910006.
And in this case, its easy to tell which year!

If it has the two levers, (tractor and auger control levers) together on the side of the machine, like this:


Then it's a 1972.

If it has the "safety throw out clutch handle" (the tractor control lever) moved *behind* the handelbars like this:


Then its a 1973.

No - I have the original owners manual and parts manual in the parts manual it shows a diagram with the rod. Mine is missing the black plastic grip. The parts no. for the upper section of the rod is 10482. It shows the 910014,90006,91007,91008 & 910010 of that year all had the same setup and there was a 6,7,& 8 H.P.Tractor option.
