Still working on the Landlord

Recommended Posts


I am still working on my 65 Landlord, with yet another question. The short piece of angle that the front end pivot rides in, seems to be in the improper orientation. I am attempting to bush the pivot, but the job would be easier if it were reversed from its current orientation. There appears to be room in either direction, as the attachment holes are only about 1/8" difference in the forward to back position, if I change the direction of the vertical leg. Can anyone tell me if the angle is right, or if it should be reversed? Trying for at least a little authenticity (with improvements)

The arrangement of the angle brace as shown in your photo appears to be backwards according to the parts list.

PS: But if you think it works better that way, well, engineers never had to actually USE what they design.

Mine was/is oriented in this manner as it was done bu a previous owner. I am attempting to bush it, was going to use bronze, but am thinking more of simply using a shaft collar welded to the angle with a grease fitting installed and grease tracks ground into the collar. There is a 1/8" difference from front to back in the angle mounting holes, so it does not really make difference as to orientation dimension wise, but I wondered if it made a difference in operation. Apparently not. Thank you

      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
