    Some Western dealers can tell you the approx year if you have a serial # but usually you need to call the factory with the number.

    If you post a pic or 2 of the blade and pump, I'd bet we can come up with an approximate year on it...or at least a general decade.;)

    Prolly not that old gv :D, and besides, Western wasn't even around then..

    The Uni-mounts came out in '93, so it has to be pre '93 since it's a conventional mount..
