When Bjarni Henrikson sent these pictures of his 9HP Landlord
in, he included this great line (referring to the first picture)...
I haven't got it off the
ground yet, I may just need a longer runway....

When I asked for more info about his tractor, here's his reply:
I bought that mower for $300 CAD, with the mower deck
not attached. It was being used as a snowplow in the winter in Calgary. The
owner did not want to part with the blade, but I was after the cutting deck
anyways. On the second day of running the connecting rod snapped in half
(after my first cut). After finding your site I was put on to SLI (Sandy Lake
Implement) where I bought a used 23D obviously out off an Allis-Chalmers. It
was cheaper, with the shipping, than all the parts and machining, to rebuild
mine. Plus I have another project for next winter. I added my freshly rebuilt
carb and old generator and it fired right up. The used engine had been
converted to coil ignition but I had to relocate the mounting of the coil to
clear the grill. I hope this winter to do a proper refreshing of the whole
tractor including painting the engine and all of the orange. There was a
stripe under the layers of paint on the hood but I don't think it was
original. It barks now and then working up a hill but does not bog down even
in thick brush.
