Can anyone tell me if the wheels and Gear Case for the Simplicity Models L and D are the same, interchangeable?

 

Can anyone tell from the attached cultivator pictures (only shots I have) if either will work for a Simplicity Model D?

 

Last, can anyone tell what the cutter bar in the attached picture goes to?

Not 100% sure but I don't think the trannys are the same between "D" and "L".  Doubt they interchange.

Wheels should interchange no problem.  Might not be the exact same size but very close.

The cultivator at the back of the trailer is a Simplicity so yes it will work.

The sickle mower is Planet Jr.

 

The tractor pictured is a Bolens Power-Ho

Can't see the other cultivator good enough to identify - possibly a Simplicity also.

No, he is not. Not sure what that one is. He has a Simplicity L ( not pictured) and a Planet Jr and some others.

Not very familiar with the model "D" so measure the tranny - might be the same.

The other cultivator I'm thinking is a Simplicity also.  Hard to tell with that picture.

I picked up an L frame today for $30 bucks and all of the drive train is complete.

 

Gtractor, the L drive train appears to be identical to the D and the gear box, wheels and hubs look to be same as the D size and appearance wise. I'll let you know once I have it apart! It has wheel weights (Lead?) and for sure they are good for the D, good ratchet hubs (I needed one too) and bushings.

 

The cultivator but was so rusted that is was scrap I think, unfortunately. He had already sold the other one....

 

Karl, what I'm really after is implements and PTO setup...

Is this what you call a PTO?

This one is NOS.  Never had a belt on it and still has the patent numbers stenciled in yellow on the face of the flat belt pulley.
