    many of the makers have stopped putting the year into the serial number saying its of no importance ...all to do with stock and sales not matching so they can carry over stock to the next year ...think you are out of luck...but of course if its a dt 65 its not current ......there seems to jbe a pre 82 dt65 and a 85 to 97 dt65....so just judge it like a women ...go by the condition .....sometimes you can play a good tune on an old girl ....

    Your engine is a 1985 model;)

    Here is the link to check the serial number yourself and a good place to find spares with microfiche pics of parts on line - just click details button next to your model year...

    as I understand it the serial number does not relate to the year BUT the first engine shipped in say 1985 had its serial number recorded and hence all those sold up to the first of 1986 were classed as 1985 models ...Thanks for finding someone who has the data on this system
