Ryan I thought they went to the small ladder frame when they changed the front implement mounts because both my 1975 Jim Dandys have the ladder frame, its just square tubing rather than rectangler tubing like the larger PK's.

I think you are right.

Also the 1612 has the larger front wheels. The decals on the side of the for the Jim Dandy still reads Economy in !977.It's a bit confusing. It would be neat to have a photo of the different Economy/Power King tractor with the correct model and year info in a folder somewhere on this site.

$200 in parts and machine work, the engine is finally together. Still have to rebuild the carb though.
