It should be on the air box above the starter handle, Yours should have been metal riveted to the side of the boc, stamped with the model number and a Homelite/Terry Serial number. If it is missing someone removed it on purpose, these don't fall off. I wont buy one without the serial number because often they have been removed because at some point in time they were stolen. The date is on the bottom side of the carb as well, somewhere in the mid 70 era.
