Hey guys I’m brand new to the forum and have some questions about my tractor that are puzzling me first off determining what it is? My identification code doesn’t line up in the manual but my serial number does saying it’s a
70 could you guys help me verify this? -Thanks

Welcome!
Headlights were option, I think.
What motor is in it? From what I can find, the '70 110 had Kohler and the '70 112 had Tecumseh's so that may help identify.
That T0655 type code is puzzling as noted.

I haven't been able to confirm it, but the T0655 type code might be a patio. I do see a couple traces of white paint in the first picture. I do agree it is a 1969 model.
Forgot they did, but that was only on the '70 + '71 models.
'69s did not break out patios from yellow and green GTs.
So it is a '70 112 patio.
69 not 70? Also one small thing should the amp gauge kinda bounce around or be steady at idle to mid speed
It should be steady. Might be a loose connection

So my tractor should really be white with an accent

Also my gauge reads 15 either way but when charging at full engine speed it only goes to the first marking on the right but seems to be charging with lights on

You’ve got a “patio” snowblower.

The type codes listed in the current printing of SM2088 (section 10, group 5, page 3) are incomplete. The dating for that specific page is Nov-69 so any type codes that came out after that date were never listed in that particular document. According to JD literature that I have, type code T0655 indicated a model 112 with Hydraulic Lift, 10 hp Tecumseh, White, (1970-71). The engines ID tag confirms it has the HH100 (10 hp Tecumseh) and based on the tractors SN (per PC1081 introduction) places it as a 1970. Can see green overspray on the tractor's SN tag edges and a little white paint peeking out along the bottom edge which further confirms it likely started life as a patio model. Would be curious to know if some color other than green lies underneath the hood and if you have a textured patio seat pan.

As for the snowthrower, is it possible you missed the last digit on the type code? Reason being, type code E2101 would identify it as a model 37A with the description 38 in., White, (1970-71). PC1085 does not provide individual model year SN breakdowns for the model 37/37A but based on the low SN I would suspect it could also be a 1970 model year.

PS. From what I have seen, JD Type Codes were not necessarily assigned in sequential order, can jump randomly all over the place and often bear little to no resemblance to the equipments model number/equipment name. Additionally, JD's overall methodology for assigning Type Codes to their Consumer Products line appears to have had major refinements at the start of the 1966, 1975 and 1983 model years.
