Finally some pics of my Landlord 101

Finally got some pics of my 10hp Landlord 101 that I bought on eBay for $100.00 back in June. When I got it the old carb was just hanging there from the throttle cables. I put approximetly 200.00 in to it so far. I put on a new carb, new muffler, new voltage regulator, fuel lines, fuelfilter, air filter, and a electronic ignition module. I hauled some logs with it in these pics, also hauled one load about 1000 pounds of rocks up a slight grade and she didn't even seem to strain. :D [img]http://mercury.walagata.com/w/mdit99/landlordtrailer.jpg[/img] I believe this was once owned by a school, because one the side panel there is a decal that says gasoline, and on the deck by the discharge there is a danger sticker. [img]http://mercury.walagata.com/w/mdit99/landlordside.jpg[/img] Also came with the weight and all the manuals, plus that sulky you guys saw at GOTO. [img]http://mercury.walagata.com/w/mdit99/landlordweight.jpg[/img] It's actually pretty good on gas. I don't know if that's because it's a new carb or what. [img]http://mercury.walagata.com/w/mdit99/landlordcarb.jpg[/img] Kent, my neighbor made a mistake on the serial number when I called him so the plate I had made up is useless. It's a 66 model with white upper grill, and white dash assembly. Still has a real low serial number. It's # 1056. [img]http://mercury.walagata.com/w/mdit99/landlorddecal.jpg[/img] I even cut the lawn with it. Now I know what you guys are talking about when you say "Simplicity cut" Every tractor I borrowed to cut the lawn always scalped. (even a walkbehind Bobcat scalped) This one left it as if you just cut it with a push mower.

Very nice tractor Nick. None of mine looked that good when I bought them. The ones I bought all cost more than you paid. The AC713S that I had at GOTO was built out of mostly "free" parts, but I still had over $500 invested by the time I was finished. I paid $150 for ThunderFoot with a blown engine twenty years ago. You did good on that deal.

toad270: Here is a picture of the stripes I made this afternoon. The deck needs to be brought up one notch since it seems to cut too short.

wantedinct & Roy: The air cleaner was on the other carb. It had been painted black, and I took some stripper and took it off. The only rust is where the wingnut scrapped the finish. Unfortunetly, the chrome side panels are not in the great of shape. They are bowed out and the finish is messed up. Under the coat of red paint the orange paint is actually in pretty good shape. Over the winter I plan to putting the B-110 into service and restore this one, all depending if I get heat in my tiny shop or not. Rod, It turned out the lug nuts loosened up on me so that weld had nothing to do with the wobble. Must havehappened when I was back in the woods.

Real sweet Nick! I really like my 3012 but like Kent, I prefer the shorter tractors. Yours gives me more incentive to get one of the B-10s going.

Nice tractor Nick! Those chrome grille supports don't look too bowed from the pic's. The ones on my 2010 were rusted worse than those. I just painted mine silver- not exactly show quality, but good enough for me for a worker. Did the same with the lift handle.

Looks good. It's nice to find an untouched orriginal instead of the abused, rusted hulks we so oftain run across.

Nice score Nick. I sure like my Landlord and 725. So far for rusted chrome parts I've gotten by buffing them clean with a fine brass wheel in the drill then clear coatting them, Not show quality, but mine all earn thier keep and it don't look bad, Maintaines the charactor of being as old as they are..
