Got the loader off tonight...now I'll be starting on whipping it back into shape.

It worked good. ..just gonna fix a few seeping seals..probably some weak/cracked welds around three Pivot points/bracket (I haven't checked it over really closely yet).

There's several ugly coats of paint...etc.

The bucket isn't too bad...it's got some mud/dirt stuck in it & the top of the extension bucket is a bit bent up...but I can heat and/or beat that back into submission rather easily.

I might even make up my own heavier duty bucket and weld it up and add it to the arsenal as well.

I'm also planning on adding Some removable forklift style forKs to one of the bucket setups too...those would be handy. .I think!

Perhaps you should start a thread on your loader installation.

Thanks. ..I will. I want to apologize to the forum...because i don't want to muddy up this power king picture thread with all of my updates on my tractor.

I also have some new info on a tire & wheel upgrade that I just did yesterday that might be helpful for other "Snapper-King" owners. ..too.

John Deere model 755 4x4 sub-compact tractor....wheels & tires....will pretty much fit right on to a Snapper/Power King !!

The rear 9.5-16's bolted right up. ..and all that I had to do to the front wheels was just take a drillbit that started into the lug holes and clean about a thousandth or 2 thousandths worth of paint and scale out.

After that they bolted right up perfectly!

This upgrade lifted my tractor quite a bit. ..widened the stance by quite a bit (especially because of the offset of the JD 755's wheels).....and it increased my top speed by a noticeable amount. It also seems to turn tighter & easier as well.

Here's a few pictures to keep in line with what this thread's about (I'll start up a new thread for my "Snapper-King" build up with the upgrades and loader. .etc)

Rear wheels are 6 hole (6 on 6" bolt pattern/circle)

Fronts are 5 hole (appears to be 5 on 4.5" bolt pattern/circle)

The front (5 hole/lug wheels) are 10"s(on turf tires) 12"s(on Ags) on the originals (I believe)....and the JD755's are 12"s on the fronts.

So they probably wouldn't work for your friends need.

Only the 16" rears are 6 bolt/lug.

Hi all,

 

New to the forum!

 

After searching for info on a 79 Power King that I bought a couple days ago the search brought me here. I saw this tractor on Craigslist while searching for a garden tractor to do a little plowing for a small garden. I am really starting to enjoy this tractor and hope to start getting it in the shape of some the nice looking tractors I have saw posted on here. I changed the oil today and bought a new air filter and muffler and am going to change the trans and rear tomorrow. It needs tires bad but other than that it fires right up and runs great and can't wait to tear into some ground with it soon!

Just recently picked up my first Power King, a 1980-2418.  It came with 4' mower deck, 4' front blade, 12" brinly 3-pt plow & a full set of wheel weights:  Tractors 2016 045.JPG

 

It does have a bad ding in the hood that somebody tried to fix with a hammer:  Tractors 2016 072.JPG

 

Since then, I've painted the wheels & front weights, added a new seat & front tires:  Tractors 2016 070.JPG

 

I made a 3-pt carry-all for Chief to ride in during the annual trail ride:  Tractors 2016 079.JPG

 

Just fits my 1980 Snowco trailer:  Tractors 2016 113.JPG

 

Overall, it appears to be lightly used & in pretty good condition.  The plan is for a complete re-paint after this year's show season is over next month!

I have this 1984 1217 and a1981 1212. Been using the 81 for 35 years. Just got the 1984 and working on fixing some details. Doss anyone know how to wire a new Amp gauge? And my charging system is not working. Where is the resistor/condenser located? Any other tips?
Thanks,  Hef

New to me 49 - 50 ? Need a brake band and still trying to get the fuel to shut-off at float bowl. I think the float may be touching the side of the bowl.
