I am looking at a used HPX diesel gator with no rollbar. They say it is a 2007, were the ones without the OPS older or was it an option?

The air intake hose goes over the valve cover, that must mean it has the smaller diesel?

Any advice would be appreciated

The early HPX gators did NOT have a roll bar. It didnt have the speed that was required to put a roll bar on it. As they got a bit faster in 2008 with a change in transmissions, is when OSHA required to have a roll bar put on.

They were a pretty solid machine! I cant think of really anything to look for, other than listen for any kind of knocking with the 4wd engaged.

Thanks, it ended up being a 2004. Nice clean machine. No locking front diff, I was kinda hoping for that.
