Just got this a month or so ago. Seems to function and cut well. I really like it. Hope to get some good use out of it. Have not determined the year model as of yet. I think that I read that the #s are on the frame, and on the underside of the hood.

First, welcome to the site! Thank you for signing up! That is a great looking PK you have! Whoever restored it did a great job! By the body tin and the grill shape it looks to be a mid to late 60s tractor, I am going to GUESS by what I see and say its a '69. It looks like all the decals were removed when this was restored, but if you can find a serial number we can find the year for you very easily. If it has a metal tag on the clutch housing it will have the serial number stamped into it. Or it may also have the serial number stamped into the frame. If you take off the body tunnel it would be stamped on the left frame rail where your foot goes, this was NOT done with all tractors at this time. It should either have a 12 or 14 horse kohler in it. The model number is determined with the rear wheel size as the first two digits and the HP is the last two digits. You either have a 2412 or a 2414. If you have any question be sure to post them and the great members of this site will do everything they can to help.

Welcome to the forum, looks like a very nice PK, and I would agree with Ryan on the year of the tractor, mine looks just about the same and is a 1970 2414. They are a real workhorse, you will be amazed what they will do.

Thanx yall, I'm sure I'll have quetions along the way. I kinda started my parts stash by buying an extra hydraulic pump. I saw a small leak there one time, then not. I had been searching Craigslist for a while for a diesel tractor. When I saw this one, I had to have it. It was restored pretty nice. It has been used since a good bit, so it shows some wear, but real nice to look at. When I get some time, I am going to look for the numbers on it! Thanx for the welcome!
