Tore into PK today in sunshine! Got trans top off and loosened up some gears, got them turning . Engine was part stuck and now turning over too. Have it all apart now. Brake shaft nice and greasy/movable, the lift shaft not so good, kinda tight. A few pix.

Looks like you made some real progress. The frame on those PK's always looks so tiny. Is it a hollow rectangular tube? It's nice to have the sun this time of year.

Brian , I think they can get away with a small frame is they use a torque tube driveshaft , Al

Yes, rectangular tubing, taller than it is wide. Pretty thick, with lots of beefed up areas with solid metals. That's what is likeable about PK, simplem metals were used to make them and you can make the same parts or similar in your own shop just buying stock metals. Most are straight parts too, no fancy bends. I built a complete three point hitch once, using another PK as a model. Could hardly tell the difference fom stock.

Think most of rust is gonna blast off real easy. Didn't really see any broken or gone teeth on gears. There was a level down inside that had a film to it, just like an old paint would have in can. Was kinda funny, had to break thru it to see bottom cluster. Must have been oild oils floating on the water?? then dried? Whatever. I tear down and blast almost everything anymore on my rebuilds, the WAY to go in my opinion. Have to go all the way down to make sure no grit in bearings and holes though. Then prime/paint stuff that needs it.
