 Looks like a twin with the exhausts coming out the top where the hood should be.

Wow, where do I begin?  There isn't much about that FEL that is original PK.  Some of it looks as if it was used to make whatever that is.  They never (that I am aware) used a single dump cylinder like that one.  The older FEL's had two cylinders mounted on the underside of the arms.  This would be the older style FEL (or some of it anyway) mounted on a mid 70's (I'm guessing) tractor.  Of course, it could be a mid 60's tractor in which case a protion os the FEL would actually be correct.  The world may never know.

I agree with Jeff, not much is original, if any. It looks like it has an opposed twin in it.

Thats a tough looking PK. The tandem transmissions are probably the most valuable things on it.

Ad says it has a twin Briggs, didn't know PK ever had a twin Briggs offered on them.

No, they didn't.  All older metal bodied PKs and Economys were single cylinder only.  Twins came along later.  They almost exclusively used kohler in later years (60's and up).  They did, however, offer a 16hp single cyl. briggs for a short time.

Brian, as Jeff said they were not used. The 16 hp he mentioned was not offered until '78 (if I remember correctly), so late 60s and early to mid 70s all had kohlers.

Yep! Not a PK loader for sure.  Newer Briggs engine, might be better thing, cept dont fit in hood/grill I guess??  Wondering about the "Narrowed" rear end the guy thinks he has!  NOT! Might be worth that or close, but would need to change to be "correct" or needs TLC to just be "Nice".  What's with the dividers in bucket, or am I seeing something else?
