There is no serial number list. They can be identified by the Sears product number stamped on the barrel. The numbers on the defective guns are: 583.13, 583.14, 583.15, 583.16, 583.17, 583.18, 583.19, 583.20, 583.21 and 583.22. The shotguns were sold in Sears stores and through its catalog as the "J.C. Higgins Bolt Action 12-Gauge Model 10 Shotgun" during the 1950s.
absolutely except bolts I have been very successful finding bolts on the web eBay has been very fertile most parts can be abtained from Numirch arm west hurley Ny
That's rather difficult. To settle a lawsuit, Sears recalled the bolts (just the bolts!) of almost all 583.xx 12 gauge shotguns by offering $50 for each one returned.
Yo may not be able to- there was a safety recall of about 7 of the different 12 g bolt action shotguns. Sears is trading the bolts for a $50 gift card. Sear for Sears Shotgun Recall.
You can try Numrich gun parts, ( e-gunparts.com )
They should be metric,bolts with numbers on them 8.8,9.8 ect.There could be a few SAE bolts on the engine depending on your engine type.If there are no numbers on them,and have short slashes they are SAE.
The serial number is located on the neck of the frame underneath the front number plate. The numbers should be stamped in on the right (or Throttle) side of the neck. Remove the three bolts that attach the number plate and look between the fork tube and the frame.
The serial numbers can be found in two places. One is on the engine just below the head, the other is on top of the frame rail on the driver's side. It is located under where the cowl bolts on so if you have the body on the frame, you will need to remove it. Also, the stamps will more than likely be filled in with paint, so you may have to take a wire brush or sand blaster to it. Jim Mason's site (see link below) has a good page on Model A serial numbers AKA engine numbers.
It's a rating of the strength of the bolt.
Check serial number on the left side of the motor where it bolts to the transom. Mine has a metal tag with model and serial number.
Engine serial number is on the rear of the engine top left side. Illustration appears to be on the flange that bolts to the transmission.
You can't. There is a safety recall on that model- unsafe to shoot. Sears has been buying back the bolts for years to take them out of circulation.
