landlord vs landlord 101

Recommended Posts

I believe Simplicity began using the 101 designation when they upgraded from the 9 hp Briggs engine to the 10 hp. That seems to have occurred sometime in 1965, and maybe initiated the 1966 model year. Although, I've read that Simplicity operated more on production runs than model years. It is odd that you show the same model numbers. My model and serial number plate designates Landlord 101 and three model choices, 990350 Electric Start, 990351 with Hydrolift, and 990352 Manual Start. The date in my engine code is November of 1965.

Go to the Briggs and Stratton website and it explains how their numbering system works. You can also access what manuals would be of use based on your engine type. MadMike

The date is identified by the last series of numbers -- 6512221... Drop the 1 on the end, and your engine was made on 12/22/65... The foot-draggin' Clubhouse Custodian...

The 243431 is the model # for the 10 HP cast iron B&S, same as I have in my 3310. According to the local mower shop, the 1 at the end of the 6512221 string means that engine came off line 1 on 22 Dec 1965.
