Are you sure that is an LA? I thought they were a 5-speed by changing the pulleys so did not have a transmission. The only year the LA, FA and VA were sold together was 1956 and they are all in the same manual you can download from
Simplicity User Manuals and Instructions
Use 990009 for a model number which is the FA.
The LA (5-speed) and FA (6-speed) were sold 1955 and 1956. The VA (3-speed) was sold 1956 and 1957.

The front mounted cultivator first shows up in the 1953 Montgomery Ward catalog as article 5644. By 1958 they were using article number 1357 which is the same as Simplicity model 990022 which can also be downloaded.

The ID tag is hard to read but it looked like LA. I went out just now to the shed to try to look again but it's too dark in there right now and I didn't have working flashlight and couldn't make out anything.
