Welcome to GTTalk! If you have the factory lift bar it will have several holes for adjustment. If the liftbar has been replaced you can just drill some new holes to get the desired stroke/lift.

First, Welcome To GTtalk! Kris is right, they are adjustable. What year is yours? If its 62 or later (I think that's the year) it should have a rod with a spring, a blocky looking thing, some R-pins and possibly some washers. If you post some pics we should be able to tell you.

For those years they had the hydraulic cylinder under the tractor, I dont know how those are hooked up but, once you get it, Im sure we can figure it out if you post some pics of the underneath

First of all, another transmission... and 2 drive tubes that are like the one with a single transmission just longer. To buy everything be prepared to spend about 400-500 bucks, at least. Unless you are going to use it for snow blowing or tilling you don't need it, but I understand wanting it. I have the double setup in my 75 and 95% of the time the rear tranny stays in 3rd. 3rd gear has a 1:1 ratio so its like having a single transmission if one is in 3rd. The only time I gear it down more then that is when im going down a steep hill with a load on. Do you plan to restore your power king? If you do make sure to start a thread with lots of pics following your progress!
