Welcome to the forum! One thing that never fails to make me jealous, is a PK with a loader!
One day I will have one, one day...
Great tractor by the way.

Thanks for all the welcoming, forums are great.
It didn't come with a blade but I've got a couple JD's GT's with blades.
I spent 5 hours on it yesterday digging and pulling stumps, along with some regrading for drainage. I am quite impressed. The only thing that i became a bit concerned with is that when the tractor heats up the clutch seems hesitant to release and the gear grinding gets a bit annoying. I figured out to throttle down and it greatly helped. I then got on here and searched and it seems that that's somewhat normal for these geared monsters. I'm going to flush the transmissions and see what the oil looks like in them.
The front tires were very dry rotted and i finished them off yesterday, so I'll be ordering some of those soon. Do you guys know what the angled valve stem tubes area called? It appears as though i need to get the ones with the 90* turn for these 12" rims.
The throttle linkage is also messed up, something isn't right with the whole pivot point area where the cable attaches to. These Kohlers never cease to amaze at how much torque they have at lower rpms.

After you flush the transmissions, use straight STP to refill them, that heavy oil will bring the gears in the transmission to a stop faster, and make shifting easier. Good idea to drain and flush, I have 5 PKs and every one of them had water in the transmission when I drained them.
As for the tubes, I've replaced the tires and tubes on two of them, and I used the shortest valve stems I could find, about an inch and 1/2 long
never had a problem yet. As for the engine/throttle, check out the Kohler website for downloadable manuals for your engine.

AJ., Welcome to GTtalk. Sorry I missed this thread to welcome someone here in TEXAS. Where are you at in the Hill country, Dad lives at Canyon Lake and I'm at Lake McQueeney. Hope you are close enough to meet sometime. Great looking PK, that's one brand I have never owned.
