Well I'm still rounding up materials for the Gannon clone its just to cold to dig around outside in the scrape pile so I decided to work on modifying an old DB cultivator to 3 pt to use on the PK  so that the potatoes onions carrots and beans can be cultivated next summer. Just got started on it this afternoon but this is what it is so far.

Nice job on your fabricating. The question I have is why your left 3 point arm is mounted on the outside of the frame and the right one is on the inside on the tractor support arm? I am working on my 2414 and noticed the manual shows installing on the inside, but they would be more straight in line with the tractor when mounted on the outside of the tractor frame. What do you think? Gene

Hi Genem, the light finaly came on and I looked at my PK this morning and you are right the RH lift arm is mounted inside and the LH is mounted outside, I have no idea which they should be, maybe some of the more experienced owners know?

Hi all, I've been looking for a set of rear wheel wts for the PK, my brother had a set of MM front wheel weights but he could only find one of them that was back in Nov, well just before Christmas he called and said he found the missing one but I couldn't get it until after Christmas as it was being use to hold the Christmas tree. Anyway I got them last week and fabricated a mount to attach them to the PK. They are now mounted  and the additional wt of 112 lbs will be nice.

Hi all, well its been very cold here in MN, so the project I want to start is waiting warmer weather but its looking good for this week, anyway to stay busy I fabricated a sub-soiler / ripper  using the extra ripper that was left over from the Earthcavator build so here another thing to out when the frost goes out, will see if the PK can pull it. Its in the paint room now will be done on Monday.

Won't be long and you will be able to stab it into the ground. With the temps we're having here north of the metro, I bet we have frost out by Friday at the latest in the yard.

Really nice job :thumbs:   You might want to only use a grade 2 bolt for the ripper tooth . When I made mine I didn't want anything to break on it ,,,, well when I hit a large root it broke the welds off the top link mount :(
