Simplicity Landlord

I own a Simplicity Landlord and need to learn more about them. About the only thing I know is it is built like a battleship and is a rugged tractor. Many questions: Just what do I have? What is the HP rating? Where is the serial number located? When were they built? It has a single cylinder cast iron Briggs engine with Delco starter/generator combo. The points are on the side of the block, but it has an automotive style coil bolted to the cyl. head. Is this normal? It has a 3 speed variable drive transmission. Mine developed an engine knock late in the season and I'll be going through it. Due to the mismatched engine shroud colors I think someone has been in it before. I need to identify the engine and get it torn down soon. Email me if you can help. Thanx & adios, DickB

I have exact tractor, made in l971 with 10hp cast iron B&S engine. Found tractor in l996, one-owner with deck, rear tiller, wheel weights, chains and original owners manual for all above. If you wish I can copy and sent to you. Also, I had engine rebuilt shortly after acquiring, if I can find invoices the guy who rebuilt it included part #s etc. The coil you describe on top is standard for that model I recently had to have Delco starter rebuilt and replace the voltage regulator. Reply back if I can help.

      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
