what do you think of my deal?

Just won this one on ebay. [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/RegistryPic/1576.jpg[/img] I am surprised this one went so cheap. Maybe lack of description? I figured the headlight bar, and mower deck are worth more then what I paid. Thank you UCD for posting this in the ebay forum. I would have passed it up otherwise.

Good deal Nick. I had bid on it, and almost jumped in at the last minute but didn't. Glad it went to a member. When I 1st bid I got an e-mail from someone in the area that wants the transmission, so he may contact you as well. Let me know if you need a hand picking it up.

I saw you had bid. I had someone contact me as well looking for the rear- end. Maybe it's the same guy? I got to email him and direct him to this site. He might not need the rear end, It could be just stuck in gear. My guess is it may be an easy fix. Neighbor might pick it up for me, gotta get a date that's right with him and the seller.

first off try to get it going again, Use it as a "daily driver" then do a full restoration. After seeing KSever's Restoration (linked below) I wanted a Landlord in this style. http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=17948&SearchTerms=Landlord

I don't know if there's a hood with it, If there isn't it's no big deal. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the restoration you did last year on yours which also made me want to do a restoration even more. Kirk's restoration will be a big help too with his very detailed pictures.

I went to pick up the tractor yesterday. It turns out to be a Landlord 101. He had the hood for it, with the original thumbscrews! Motor date says it was made on 3/11/65. He said he was the third owner. Looks like one of the owners was a school because it had a decal that said Gasoline on the LH side panel and a warning sticker by the deck discharge. The carb needs a rebuild, but sure has a lot of compression! Guy said he has some other things to go with it. Rear counter weight, lift rod for plow, the owners manual, dozer blade manual, headlight bar manual, 31 page brochure that came from the dealer, it lists the 101, the broadmoor, and the wonderboy and the brochure for attachments like the York rake lawn aerator and such. also he threw in a ride sulky attachment that was made by Jacobson. Two years ago he sold off the snowblower and dozerblade if he still had them he would have thrown them in with the deal too. Stopped at the neighbors friends house he gave me a 12"? moldboard plow complete with hitch, and a 10"? moldboard plow missing the hitch. I wanted to take some photo but Ma dropped the camera now the lense won't go in. Well, not to bad for $100.00. When can I have my photo hanging up in the post office? ^

I have decided this one is the easier to restore then the B-110 at the moment. I have ridden around on her enough to know what she needs, Like the throttle assembly I got from Mike, and the engine needs a new oil pan gasket. Since I have to pull it apart just for that, I might as well start restoring her. I'll probably be asking many questions so be prepared. Look for it a local club gathering soon. ;)

I bought this one in June of 2004, and have approximetly $210 in her so far. We bought a new camera so that should solve my problem about reassembly. The paint that's on there is red latex, The paint underneath appears to be good but I plan on stripping her down to bare metal. I read on here an aerosol can of Parks paint stripper works wonders. I have heard it from other folks too, so I think I'll give it a try.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
