Some Landlord Questions

Recommended Posts

mmischni
Hello all, I have had a hand-me-down Broadmoor for a number of years and finally convinced the wife to let me buy another tractor. I picked up a Landlord 990314 from about 1964 or so. I know little about the large frames, so now that I have it home and have been learning what to look for (wrong order, I know), I see it has been hard-used. Used to have a Hi-Lo! but now only has the rusty sun gears left and the outer gear is welded to what I hope is a sleeve and not the shaft. It also has a nice stout strap welded around the front frame right at the BGB box interface, so I assume there was cracking there. I will probably have to put a couple hundred dollars into just tires and belts alone! My dear wife probably didn't know what she was starting... First question, for the mid PTO, the parts manual has two options, for mfg # 568 and 569, and then for 496 and 497 and each has a different belt. Nothing is listed for the 314 mfg #. The PTO on my tractor looks close to what is in the 496/497 diagram, so is that the belt I need (154307) or is there another PTO for a 990314 that I haven't seen? For all I know this tractor has ben pieced together from others. Next question, the differential on these axles is quite interesting! Is there be a fair bit of slop in this setup, or is it ideally pretty tight? Mine allows a fair bit of rotation of one side before it turns the opposite wheel. I found an excellent resource here regarding the starter/generator units, but where shall I look for correct brushes for the starter? Also, is there anything that can/should be done to the contacts in the regulator? They have obvious discoloration/pitting, but I read that they are tungsten and very durable. And adjusted very finely. Don't want to file them if I should just leave them alone. Anyhow, I should probably break up all my questions over a couple of posts! I am a fan of this site and have gotten lots of great info without even asking anything over the last 3 years or so. Thanks in advance! Matt

Matt, Check out this page: http://simpletractors.com/X-reference/ac_s_pg1.htm According to the page above, the combinations you are talking about did not exist. The 314 is said to be a manual start (pull cord, no starter). The varidrives did not come out till later in the series. Either you have several things mixed up, or your tractor is a mixture of parts from several different tractors. The page I listed above should help you sort out what you have. My son has a 64 Landlord, the 308 model. That is what got me interested, because what you were describing was quite different from his.

If the pto is original it would be the same as on the early B-10, these are much different and use a differnet length belt than those used on the 496 and 497 tractors which are a later "square hood" tractor. Unfortunately I don't have my belt book here, its back home 100 miles away. If someone else doesn't get you the info by Saturday, I'll be home and get you the part#

I don't know if the electric start was an option or what, but my manual and the one Gregc sent both show my starting system for the 314. Now the rest of it, I wouldn't be suprised if there were parts from other tractors! Thanks Greg for the manual link. The one I had was for a combined Landlord series and didn't show PTO for the 314/308. Chris, I should have the right belt number now, thanks! Matt

      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
