Landlord 101 bevel gear shaft bearing

Recommended Posts

Looking for any tips. My input shaft to the bevel gear box is a bit sloppy. I need to replace the needle bearing and seal. Is it as bad a job as it looks to get that gear box out? Thank you very much in advance, Mike

welcome to the club. I have rebuilt a bevel gear box (BGB), you have to remove the rear half of the tractor at the BGB. Once the tractor is split, it is not too difficult. There is a manual available, free from the simplicity tech pubs. You should invest the $10.00 to become a member, you will be able to post pictures etc. This site will be a valuable asset. JH

It is a fairly simple fix, if you have the time and patience, and a little mechanical ability thrown in. While you have it apart, there are other bearings and several seals you might also replace simply because. Join up, ask questions, any problems you might encounter are somewhere in the archives already, but we'll try again.

When you go to get parts I highly recommend Sandy Lake Implement. Brenda spent a lot of time with me trying to figure why my BGB parts didn't fit. She finally determined my BGB wasn't original for my AC 312. Ended up sending the whole BGB and parts to HER and shes getting me the right parts. $20.00 shipping and 1 week vs. $25.00 in phone calls over who knows how many weeks and ppuloing my few remaining hairs out. Works for me!

welcome, Mike! you'll need a couple of jack stands, 4 would be even nicer. it is only a relatively few bolts and the tractor is in two pieces, then getting the BGB out is easy. you can figure it out if you are handy by looking over the parts book for your tractor. It can be heavy work, and the jack stands help a lot. I used a hydraulic floor jack to help, that way even a semi-old man can do it solo. Fix the bearing soon. bad bad things happen when they are left.

Thank you to everyone for you very helpful tips! I greatly appreciate it. I have it apart and need to go order all the seals and needle bearings etc. Are there any online parts resources for these tractors. It's easier than driving around to dealers. Mike

Thanks again! I went to Tuckers in Keene NH. The people there were superb and the owner was very enthusiastic in helping me when he heard I was restoring my 65 Landlord. I couldnt believe how much of the parts they had in stock. I had no idea that the drive shaft couplings had been updated over the years. Mine were the rubber disc and metal plate type. Well, I'm headed out to the garage. Thank you. Mike

      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
