Earlier today my Uncle Kevin, Cousin Adam, and I went to an antique steam show in CT. We where about 200 yards away, and I saw somebody has a small trailer on it with some odd stuff, and on the trailer was an old wrap around round hood for a Power King!


We walked straight over to him and I asked what he wanted... I almost had a heart attack when he said $20! I did not even haggle with him, and I gave him $20 and said I would pick it up on the way out. It has very minimal damage, but I will be able to fix that without a problem.



He has a few other things there, the only other things PK he had was a snow plow, a 3 point draw bar, and the lower arms for the 3 point. As we walked around I kept thinking about the snow plow; when I went back to get the hood I asked what he wanted for the plow and he said he wanted $50 for it! Great price, but it was missing the lift linkages (still a great deal though). After pointing out the missing linkages, he said $40, I told him I would do $30... and he agreed. The one I bought today is the one all the way to the left.



I am going to use the hood on the '56 PK. The reason is because it has the Briggs cut outs, this way I can replace that Wisconsin with rotted off fins with a more common Briggs.


The plow, I can make the lift linkages without a problem and I will be able to use it.


With the prices he had, I probably should have asked him about the three point stuff; oh well, to late now.

It sure sounds like you met up with the right seller.  He had the things you wanted.  Congratulations on your "new" stuff.

My choice would have been the Second orange blade. That fits more modern tractors tho and needs the 4 block type hangers. Not sure how they hung those early ones, and on JD's either, they were different. Wow! I never get good prices on the neat stuff. Guy must not have known what he really had?? :thumbs:

Looks like you had a great day Ryan. It's always nice to go and find something you want, and right at the start of the show. Some days are like that, good luck follows you.
