Hello,  I picked up Simplicity landlord with a plow recently.  I paid $150 and I am interested in fixing it up.


Problem is I do not know the model or year.  I found numbers on the engine but cannot find any numbers on the tractor.  The metal seat base is rusted and there is no sticker.


Can anyone tell me what tractor I Have?


The engine has these numbers...


B&S Easyspin Starting

243431 0627-02 7212281

{When I looked this up I think it said this was a 10HP engine.}


The starter says this...


Anderson, Ind.

Delco 1101864-6M  {7}??

12  volts

The tractor model is "Landlord"

Quality wise,  they are about as good as you could ever get.

Welcome to GTT!

Welcome to GTT. That looks like a  Simplicity from around 1966 or 67. You have lucked into one of the great tractors. Check our Manuals Section for the Manuals. It is the same as an Allis Chalmers B-10. Checkout www.simpletractors.com to learn the history and see what attachments were produced. BTW the pulley on the front is very desireable. Please be very carefull taking it off and storing it . Good Luck, Rick


I just realized that you made out very well. There is $200 worth of original Simplicity wheel weights on those back wheels. Also be very carefull when using that plow. It is known as a "frame breaker" because it doesn't have the spring trip mechanism.

You have a 1964 Landlord, the first year of the model.  The engine is a later replacement, as noted above, a '72 10 horse, which is in place of the model 23D 9hp Briggs it was born with.


150 is a little tall for the machine if nonrunning, or a pretty fair deal if she fires up.  The double stacked wheel weights are a huge bonus...they average around $100 per pair.  The cast PTO pulley on the front is a bonus as well.  Those have been fetching north of $40-50 lately.


Looks like the previous owner was a bit confused on the plow setup.  It's actually attached to a partial snowblower hitch in the photo (another bonus).  The plow would pin beneath the front axle, where two tabs hand down slightly behind the wishbone.

Thank you all for your input. I appreciate it. The guy who sold it to me was selling it for a friend. Yes it does run but the steering is all over the place. First time i drove it i turned the wheel and it did not turn back which landed me in a small pine tree. Im gonna have fun fixing it up!

Thank you for welcome messages. im glad to be here among such nice and helpful people!
