Hello all,
Pretty desperate here, I recently picked up an 1618 PK knowing that the transmission was bad. Well it's really bad it may have one good gear left in it. I am looking for a replacement of which I called Mission today and was quoted 1372.00 for the trans and 740.00??? For the clutch. Any other Leeds would be appreciated. I really don't want to give up on it. Would anyone know who the transmission manufacturer was? If anyone knows of any parts out there I would be happy to hear a out them.
Thank you
Mike

I don't know who made the clutch/trans for theis series of "Plastic" Kings but your best best is to search out a used tractor that has the parts you need. The clutch is usually the weakest link and needs the $$ and a knowing person to deal with it.

Good luck.

could you find a hydro unit out of  another "plastic" king and swap it out for the 4 speed?  Are the differentials the same? If so, it would eliminate the problematic clutch issue.

The hydros from the 1200 series are more common, but Yes, have diff rear-ends. The bigger units might change, but you need a parts tractor with all the system as they have coolers involved and usually power steering on those and diff fenders and controls. It is not much easier to find the hydros tho and if you did would just keep it whole, would think.

Hello All,

 

A little update, I picked up another 1618, running with 60" deck and worksaver (manual) rear drag blade, as well as 3 point and P.S. on friday. Well today I got a like new 48" tiller, factory soft side cab, 18 hp mag, transmission, clutch, 3 point, chains, and hydraulic system. Some of todays pickup will repair number 1, add to number 2, and I should have some spare parts as well.

 

Take care,

Mike
