My '92 model has '883' stamped on the cylinder base, right side, just behind a pushrod, hard to see. There's also some kind of 'A' sign and ''91' stamped on the same side.

I find those laying around the house everywhere. She must have a 100 of them. Who would've thought I should put a few in my tool box.

Twist the grip! If it pulls hard to upper rpms, its a 1200. If it falls flat and stops accelerating half way up, its a 883.
