    1993 week 37, so I assume it is an "orange top".

    There were other changes than just the color of the top cover at about the same time - and the fuel line was one of them. You likely need the one listed in the 1993-09 IPL, link: http://www.barrettsmallengine.com/partslist/husqvarna61-1993-09.PDF

    The fuel line you have looks more like the one listed here: http://www.barrettsmallengine.com/partslist/husqvarna61-1991-03.PDF

    I have later learned that it happened a bit earlier than week 20, and it looks like the exact time varied a bit between models.

    Anyway it is obvious from the tag which system was used on a given saw, so this is more an academic question than a problem (provided you know both systems).

    What differentiates a serial number for a saw that was made in 1986 vs 1996 or any of the other years that have the same last digit up to and not including 2000.

    83 and 93
    84 and 94 and so on

    You need to know the period during which the saws were manufactured. In the above example 262xp that was made from 1990-1999 so, 6130189 would be the 189th saw made during the 13th week of 19996.

    Ok so the format is the same but just knowing the fact that a 262xp wasn't in the lineup in '86 is what makes the difference?

    Hope I'm not too late to the party. Anyone able to figure this one out? Husky 61. Serial reads 123198. As you can see I need an oil cap.

    That one was made prior to the "code" which started in 1982. It was made between 1978 and 1981.

    Got it, that's what I was thinking as well. Anyone happen to have an extra oil cap to sell for one of these early model 61's? I've bought a couple already but they ended up being for the later models I'm guessing as they were slightly too big. Thanks for the help!
