Dick Grant's '64 Landlord earned the nickname "StinKy" because
it smoked, and the ensuing smell... But, it's reliability and quality earned
Dick's deep respect -- he's now hooked like many of us. Check out his
tractors, and hear his "story."

New in my little stable (July 30) is Allis-Chalmers 314-D. It is
just plain dirty and needs good cleaning to bring it up to passable
appearance. Needs deck work and an engine rebuild before I can put it to
work. Would like to retain original seat with that nice Allis logo on its
backside but the cushion is shot. Can anybody re-do an original seat?
Would appreciate any advice.
Next is StinKy --the 64 Landlord that's responsible for
me finding Simple trACtors and meeting all the fine people who make up
this great club. I've owned the Landlord for about 8 yrs.
Until I joined Simple trACtors, detailed repair information was sketchy at
best, so trial and error mixed with a little common sense was the way I
kept StinKy running. Recently fashioned a frame mounted front blade and
will submit photos of the hook-up in the future. This is a working tractor
so please allow for it's less than pristine appearance.
Last is the 3210-V. Oh Boy, have I got my work cut out for
me!! Currently it resides in a corner of my basement and yes there IS a
complete tractor in that jumble of parts. This is the one I want to bring back
to "cherry" condition...... well at least I've got one fine "before" photo!
