Got the old '64 Landlord in her plowing cloths for tomorrows show in Tipton, Indiana.  I have had this old unknown walk behind plow for almost 10 years and never used it.  Always had a Brinly around I guess.   This time I dont have one handy, so I dug this old thing out, freed the coulter wheel and turnbuckle back up again. Need to get it sandblasted by someone so I can paint it.   Cheers  Mike

Looks like it's time to shine that plow! Nice looking unit!

Gonna take some series time in the furrow to polish this plow.  Got it for free about 10 years ago, been sitting in my shed ever since. Everything was frozen, broke it loose right after I got it, but its all still very stiff. Looks to have had little to no use when judged by the point on the plow.  Should be a good time putting it back to work.  Been a long time since I plowed with a LL

Great looking '64! You should get some pics plowing and post them here. The parts came in for my 23D, so I'll be putting the engine for my '64 back together this weekend. Hopefully I'll be able to mow with it on Sunday.

Didnt do much plowing, as I am adapting a later style repro sleeve hitch, my eyebolt to lift it didnt hold up to the weight of the plow.  Ground was like concrete anyways and those that did have proper set ups were not doing that well either.  I did find a close match to my guide headlight I got at the Winimac show last month.  Got it painted and installed, yes I know they are usualy black, but that shows scratches and dust.  I had some nice epoxy paint in offwhite that closely matches the OEM white.  So that is what I used.  Still need a switch in the dash to turn them on, anybody have a pic where the OEM switch went and what style it was?  Both lights have nice original Guide sealed beams that work.  Brackets are a pair I had, dont remember where I got them, not OEM but they work and the price was right.  In the last pic you can see my new L bracket set up to lift my sleeve hitch, much better!  Axle seals are starting to seep with usage, not looking forward to replacing them or the cracked drive disc at the BGB end of the drive shaft.   Cheers Mike

I just have to be different, just like when it comes time to replace the 23d, a 6hp clone diesel will go in.  Mike
