I'm looking for some help identifying my tractor and solving a carburetor issue.

I would like to know what the numbers on the serial number plate mean. The serial number plate is down by the clutch pedal. The plate is trapezoid shaped with two rivets on the top and one on the bottom. There are two series of stamped numbers on the plate. The series of numbers on the top row are:
515-71189

The series of numbers on the bottom row are:
234 933 -019

My guess is that the serial number is 234 933 which means it's a 1972 Oliver 550:
1. Can anyone confirm?
2. and what does the top series of numbers mean?
3. And what does the -019 after the serial number mean?

Real issue: As you can see from the picture with the carburetor, there is a thumb screw missing and gas is leaking out of the carb. Can I buy that thumb screw? If so what is it called? and What does it do?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

That's just your carb bowl drain screw that's missing. Yes, those can be sourced. It should be a Marvel Schebler TSX-811. Offhand, I'd try a brass 1/8 pipe thread plug. I could be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time.

That's NOT the drain plug that is missing. The plug can be seen to the left. That carb has an adjustable main jet and he is missing the adjustment needle, or whatever the correct term is. Sorry the pic is sideways. Got a new computer and I'm having issues learning.

Thats my bad. That out of focus pic had me fooled. I see the drain plug now blended into the background. It's a type c with an adjustable needle. I agree. Looks like the needle assembly is missing.

? Your tractor was built in 1972, note the Product Identification plate is after the second merger of Oliver and MM when headquarters was relocated to Butterfield, Il.

? Top row of numbers: 515 is the model number, a late 550, last model built. ? Following the dash after 515 the 7 means it was built as a 2 wheel drive Industrial. ? 1 means it was built with a gas engine. ? Last three is how the tractor was assembled.
