    OOPS!! Wrong Color!

    My horoscope (or maybe it was a little birdy, I forget) told me to broaden my horizons, so today was the day! Having not bought a new tractor project in nearly two years, I'd decided I wanted a Power King. Found this 1980, 2418 on CL in St Joe a few days ago: Click image for larger version.

    My first non-JD tractor since the 1948 model "V" Avery I had in the 1970's! It came with 4' deck, 4' snow blade, 3-pt Brinly plow & manuals. Needs some work, new seat & tires, I'll put the seat & tires on right away, hold off on the rears.

    There are a TON of those Power King tractors up for sale around me all the time. Some run, some just for parts. I had never seen one until just a few years ago. They look like pretty cool little machines. I'd be kinda interested in some action shots showing that thing at work!

    Hiya,

    Bravo on finding a nice PK 2418, looks like one of the last years they made the all steel tractors. We used to have PK's in the family for lawnmowers and the city I worked for had them for each school to mow. The last one we had was a 1967 Deluxe 12hp.

    You may want to see if you can dig up a secondary transmission and a drive tube for it. (Your sheet metal tube has the cut-out for the second trans, your's would be a standard model as they had a single trans, the deluxe had dual trans)

    If you are able to find one, you can pull houses with it as in low-low with the differential and reduction housings they have, it's about a 400 to 1 reduction.

    Here's ours hauling wood one fall

    That's pretty cool!

    It looks like a Kohler air cleaner cover on the side. Is that what powers it?

    That's a nice size tractor - would make a good project for me as it would be useful for my property plus wouldn't take up a whole lot of room in my barn.

    Looking forward to your progress!

    Those wheel weights look familiar!

    About 1972 my 4-H club hosted a town festival. Tractor DRIVING contest, garden tractor pulling contest, and a chicken barbecue. Neighbor was past State champ at tractor driving contest, so he ran that contest. He also had 23-8.50x12 Firestone tires on his 122 Cub Cadet. I got to talking with him before the pull and we agreed that I'd buy his tires after the pull if he still wanted to sell them. ANYHOW, three guys with Economy Power Kings trailered down together from Rockford, Ill, they kinda beat up all the Cub Cadets that day. They won one class, finished 2nd in two, and placed 3rd in all the classes! Now, back to my Firestone tires, Freddy won two classes and was 2nd in a third, he didn't want to sell his tires! Took me 28 years to finally get me a pair of them.

    The larger diameter tires and all gear drive train made them a great pulling tractor.
