just got a 2418, but no motor
Posted January 14, 2011 - 08:03 AM
I am new here and my father just bought a 2418, I think. It is definately sure of the 18, it's on the hood. He has all of the parts, except the dash board and the motor. I don't know the serial number as the dash board is missing. The tractor is in very good shape, I think. I was wondering how hard it is to get parts for one of these? We live in Canada, I don't know how many of these were sold up here. Will a new Kohler motor fit in one of these tractors? It doesn't have a FEL, is it possible to fit a new one to it?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Depending on fabrication skills anything is possible. Do you have pics or more details on the engine that is in it now? There are some Power King / Economy guys on here that should be able to help you out more.

My 2418 has the serial # on the grille as well as the dash. I have no idea if all did - but you might look between the headlights for another serial tag. Try to find a K-341 Kohler 16 horse engine for the tractor. That will be a better engine than the original 18horse K-361, and much easier to find a good one. Good Luck!!
