Landlord Restoration In Zippo's Honor

Recommended Posts

Simplicity7013H

Well, time for a winter project... In honor of my good friend ZippoVarga, I am restoring my 1964 Landlord and dedicating it to him. I have stated to tear it down and is in quite a few pieces. It will be a slow winter project to keep me busy. Hopefully it will be done in time for spring. But then again... Im not in a hurry. I will post pictures as I progress.

You might consider finding a blaster close, Will save a lot of sanding. Most will do it fairly reasonable.You gonna call it Zippo Trac ???:D:D

id="quote">Was wondering the same thing...As for the blasting, unless you have professional equipment the results and time spent to achieve the results, will be disappointing. There are also significant health hazards (at least with silica sand) and its not worth it. I have a blast cabinet I have been using for small items and always wear a respirator when using the cabinet.

I was up for a challenge so I hooked the compressor pump to my tractor and got the tank up to 100 PSI. Tried out the blaster gun with some HFT black beauty mix and it works well but not worth the time for the whole thing.

Elliott I've got a 40 lb and cabinet, the 40lber was much qiucker than cabinet but also wasted a lot of black beauty material. The 207 I'm doing I blasted everything every happy with results, just that I didn't think to wipe with a tack cloth so repainting several noticeable pieces. You mentioned compressor I used to have a small one on my B 112 that I pulled my mini around a pulls mounted on front crank and had air tank under center worked real good for my needs. I have it mounted on a 10 gallon tank now in my mowing trailer w/6.5hp Predator engine.

Well, The Landlord is fully disassembled. There pictures are from a few days ago but seeing as the photo error is not yet resolved, I decided to upload from "The Bucket". The BGB is off but I cant get the rope start pulley off to allow for side plate removal. Parts are shoved away and I was able to cram the 7117 in the barn also. I use 10" rusted out hub caps for my storage trays. Now Ive got 50+ years of love to de-greasesm00

Have a Land lord about the same age still running. Only suggesting what I had to do, engine- change piston, hone cylinder just made max measurements before rebore, right side axle rebuild keyway (tricky) to do. think I still have pictures if you want a look, they were also posted on this site long ago about 3 years ago. Fixed a little of this and that machine works very well.

Ugly Betty! There's already an Ugly Annie....well, there was any how. Now Annie has been replaced by Frankentractor. Bryan Osenga's Son has Frankentractor. Can you guys believe...Elliott put the Ol' Landlord BACK together to use through the Winter? This kid doesn't mess around!! I know the Ol' Landlord will be a fabulous restoration this Spring.

I have gotten the dash, hood, grill frame, and fenders all sanded. The dash has been primed and painted with Rustoleum gloss black.

I have been struggling through cleaning up the 50+ years of crud that's built up. That is all done on the frame now, I have just the tranny to degrease yet.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
