Heres the link to the ad.
I was wondering if it's the same tractor that was for sale in NB a couple of summers ago. I think the asking price was 4k then. That tractor had just about every attachment available with it. This one, not so much. I just noticed that it's a single. So if it is 18hp it's a K361!

Seems like a Premium price my opinion. Those 18's can be good or valve/head problems, never really know till you've had awhile. Looks nice, just more than I would pay for any older PK. Course, I'm Cheap! too.

The 18's are a not too common large single K series engine. Not overhead valve, just a bigger K341. I'm not sure how they got the larger displacement. I don't know if anyone but PK used them in production tractors. When HP kept going up I suppose it was cheaper to remain competetive by putting in a bigger single that didn't require any chassis changes than to go to a twin which would have required a lot of changes.

k361 Is overhead valve, one of first for them. That's where problem is. Gunk gets on fins, gasket for valve cover leaks on the gunk on fins, gets too hot if not cleaned off, then the steel valve seat gets pounded into the aluminum head and it messes up the metallurgy of aluminum, and gets flaky and seat falls out. One of issues to tell it is going bad is constantly having to reset the valves because the clearance goes away as the seat moves. Most times used heads all have same problem and new ones are pretty non-existant anymore. Think this same tractor is listed on the PK forum on Yahoo and he says now has 14hp K and 18 will go with it. Also has loader, 2 buckets, blade for loader, some rear attachments, etc. Same $4000 asking for all that. Sounded like same guy tho, all recent rebuild.
