well got it running today and had a chance to take it for a spin around the yard

I will post pics tomorrow

I am also having a problem in which the tractor isnt charging, If i do a jumper wire from A to B it charges

Does this sound like the regulator? can it be adjusted? or time for a new one?

so I did a lot of testing and just decided to borrow the regulator off my Big ten #2

since it will be a frame off I will need to get a new one for it

 

I guess the cutout relay is bad causing it not to charge the battery

 

But after that I was able to take the bearing off the 64 landlord for the tiller pully

and had to get a correct 44in by 5/8 belt, then just grease the entire tractor and the tiller

and wow it does such an amazing job

some pics!!!!!!!!!!

Got to till the garden at my brothers on saturday, bro plowed it with his farmall 504

then it was time for the rototiller to do its magic

 

I never thought the tiller would work this well, just wish I had Hi/Low

 

 

now soon its time to plant and garden!!!!!

      I have a few of these, only mine are all alllis chalmers, I have had a steady problem all along with the steering gear, the cross bolts that hold the steering wheel shaft to the steering gear come loose at least once a year, I have gone as far as to make a tin plate that fits over the two bolts so I could hammer the ends over and hold the bolts tight, like you would see on connecting rod bolts.  even that worked loose one time.

     Not sure why they do this but in the end I had to put a small tack weld on them to hold them in place, other than that they all interchange that I have seen.

yeah I havent had these come loose

but yet its not mowing season yet, I love the old steering set ups better a lot more meat for the gears to mesh

 

I hope it warms up soon so I can paint the wheels and grill

 

stay tuned this is my favorite, its the big brother to my 707 I got when I was 8

I have a Landlord 101 and love it as well. I have an original tiller and original cart for it that I don't need.

Any suggestions? Do people look for these attachments sometimes?
