From the "History" page on the Simple trACtors site: "The first 4 wheel garden tractor was the 7 horsepower Wonderboy 700, introduced in 1959. The tractor became simply the 700 for 1960 and 1961, to avoid confusion with the rear engine models. A slightly more powerful engine was installed and it became the 7.25 horsepower 725 in 1961. The 725, with yellow paint and minor sheet metal changes, became the Allis-Chalmers B-1. During the rest of the 1960’s the tractor line was greatly expanded. The 725 evolved into the 9 horsepower Landlord in 1963 and the 10 horsepower Landlord 101 in 1965." Pat

      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.
