Hi guys, I'm new to the sight. I just picked up a 1975 power king 1614!!! It has a loader, three point hitch, rear wheel weights, and the dual transmissions!!!! The best part is I got it for free!!!!! The motor is seized but it turns out that it's from a mouse nest in the fan shroud which caused the aluminum block to corrode and swell and lock the flywheel in place, I just have to get a puller from work for the flywheel and I should have that problem fixed. Next thing I noticed is that the front transmission only seems to have two positions on the stick so thinking something is wrong there also but I will look into that once it's running :-)
New Guy Here

Welcome, and congrats on that PK. Check the PK forum for info. on transmission problems. That's one of the best free tractors I've ever sen. No, wait a minute, it has a loader so it IS the best free tractor I've ever seen!

Welcome to the site. Use plenty of penetrating oil on that flywheel and be patient. You can download manuals from our Manuals Section(3 free per day). Nice machine. Good Luck, Rick

Free? I usually Over-pay! Very good tractors easy to work on. Join the Yahoogroups.com/power king tractors group too. PK"s have tendency to have trans stick in one gear or miss two on same shift rail. The ball on end of shift lever is worn down and squeezes between the shift rails and you get locked up many times. Pulling top off the trans and repositioning the gears and putting top back on will usually temp fix to move it. There is a post saved at top of PK forum about welding up the ball end on lever. OR, some guys on that other forum will do them for about $50 if you send to them. Worst part is the tin has to come off the whole tractor to work much on engine, trans or clutch. Another item is the clutches not fully releasing and getting gear grinding and such. Read over the posts here and you will get idea of issues. Take pix of repairs and post if you can. Manuals on these are kinda simple. Do have parts blow-ups and numbers in them. Each system, like Mower, three pt, and loader, all have their own manuals on how to mount and use them. Epay has lots of used parts if you do that sight.

Just looking at loader. That is the BIG loose material bucket. Not too good for digging, but OK for loose stuff and snow. I see someone has added to the front of it. That was one part bad on the buckets, not deep and would have lots of picked up material just fall out again as you lifted because it was too short at bottom. Someone has fixed that for you here. Bucket doesn't tip back much either, that was part of orig problem, now should be higher in front when tipping.
Noticed lots of Blue around there. Had matching tractor and Truck at one time, ha! Guys here like the Ford LGT's too, check that forum out also. Any more around your place?
