Where is the model # on an old mtd rear tine tiller?

I have a mtd rear tine tiller, Lowes brand, that I bought in the 80's.

I can't find the manual on it and I need to replace the tines on it again.

Anyone know where the model # would be located? I can't find it anywhere.

Also where would be a good place to get new tines online?

It looks like this Sears brand MTD.

Here is a link that might be useful: Sears manual

Never mind, I found it after getting it out in the sun where I could see the faded numbers. It was on the tine cover, all that I could see on the faded out tag was an 800 number before getting it in the sun. Old timers disease!

I was checking tag cleaning off with WD 40 could not see numbers I don't anybody could I spayed and look at where each number was through fluid liquid number where easy to see. I guess like fish under water looks way big than out water. The angle of light does help bring out numbers I've moved and then see number, but spray works best.

Wow, those tines are expensive! $14 each and it uses 16 of them!
