Default late S.N. John Deere

I got my Grandpa's 1 1/2hp JD home sunday night. I bought it back from a good engine friend. He bought it at Grandpa's auction. Grandpa never restored it but he did rebuild it internally (as far as I can tell). It's in pretty much the same condition as when it was sold at auction in the late 1980's. The neat thing about it is the S.N. It's #367827 and from my list of S.N.'s for JD's, that puts it as a 1946 and from my calculations they only made 158 more engines after that before they quit all together. This has got me wondering, are there any "younger" JD engines out there?
What about other engine makes? Anybody have the very "last" engine, by serial number, made from any company? I read that F&J made quite a few from "parts" in the end, and I'm sure that was also true of some other companies. I know a guy that worked at Case/IHC at one time that looked through their parts computer and started buying every part he could find worldwide for the LB engines. I think he told me he came up with enough parts, plus tons extra to make a few brand new engines from parts! I don't think he ever did put any together though. I think he traded all of the parts off towards some other engines.
Any comments?

My dad has a 2hp Associated with sn347595, according to the book Amanco Engines by David W Edgington the last serial number is 347483. So that makes dads 112 higher then the previousely thought last number. Does anyone know of a higher serial number?? This engine also has a factory governer guard part number SMU. Has anyone know of any other Associated engines with this??

Check out my web site. I show a 2HP Chore Boy on the serial number photo page with a serial number almost 1000 engines later than your dads. Also, David Edgington's book doesn't give the highest number made, only the highest found in Great Britian.
