Since the Big Ten parts tractor has become a full blown restoration, I needed another parts tractor. This Landlord was on Craigslist for 300.00 and it was offered to me for 200.00. I passed on it since I needed a good hood and LH side panel, and these were chopped. I got a call from the guy yesterday and he said 150.00 would be OK for the tractor, plow, and snowblower and I couldn't pass it up.Well, I went and picked it up today and it's mostly complete, so it will be put to use. The BGB has almost no play,it shifts fine, and the rear just needs axle seals. The engine has great compression, but I'm not going to try starting it without going over a few things. The engine will come off tomorrow so it can get a good cleaning, and I'll clean all of the electrical connections. I've already found the rest of the PTO assembly for the blower, and the pulley for the engine PTO to run it.
And so it goes, another parts tractor will come back to life.

Interesting with the gold, looks like someone tried to make a Squire, looks like a good deal there.

 

Now you got another three belt snow thrower and dozer blade, very cool :thumbs:

 

Yes, 1964, landlord early.

Thanks Trowel, I didn't get a chance to look it over too good before going to work this afternoon. I have to work in the morning, but I'll try to get it running by tomorrow night. I did need a plow since I didn't have one at all. I was surprised to see that the snow blower was an early one when he sent the pics.

Very nice.  I think that was a good purchase and it sounds like it was well worth saving versus parting!

I can't bring myself to part these tractors if they have half a chance, Ben. My son will be running this one around for sure.

Well, I took some water based paint stripper, a 1 inch brush, and started removing the gold paint. I have to do small sections at a time and rinse with a hose right away. The tractor doesn't look too bad underneath the gold. I'm waiting on a coil for the 23D armature to show up so I can get the engine started. The drivetrain is in good shape, so I should be able to fix the minor issues and put it to use. I'd like to restore it at a later date since some other projects need to get done first.
