Yes on shift pattern

 

I keep the rear in 3rd & do all "Shifting" with the front.

You can do just the opposite & have the same results.

3rd is "straight thru" ... so either tran in 3rd will act like it has just one tran.

2nd / 2nd will give you  "a different gear"

1st / 1st will give you "creeper gear"

Rev / Rev will make it go forward.

Thanks Glenn, that's the infro I was wanting, I had searched for a shift pattern decal / picture and only can up with the 4 speed tranny one so I asked here then this afternoon I was looking in the owners manual and there it was plain as day.

I most likely will poo the front tranny for the most part also.

If both the stickers with the serial numbers is gone, I can see the front one is, you might want to take the body tunnel off. There are some tractors that had the serial number welded on the top frame under were your left foot would rest. Its a long shot but it may pay off. Good luck.

Hi countryboy88, thanks I'll check that area out don't think I'll lift the tunnel first I'll look close with a mirror to see if there is anything if so then I sure would lift it.

Hi all, well made good progress on the PK these last couple of days, got the Kohl k321 running and have 1 for break-in time on it. Today I installed the hogshead and clutch assy then got the engine in the tractor of course the clutch wouldn't work so I pulled the engine checked everything over then gave it a second try this time all went good  don't know what was causing the problem but its ok now. Got the hyd pump mounted and the hoses connected the throttle and choke cables connected.

Well it drives and drive nicely, got it pretty much reassembled, just have the exhaust system to figure out what and how to do it if anyone has some pictures of the exhaust pipe routing I would appreciate them, install the hood and then to do the smaller things, like non-skid paint on the break pedal, a pad on the clutch pedal tidy up the seat etc. The hydraulics work good and the tractor steers and drives nice.HPIM2104.JPG HPIM2106.JPG HPIM2107.JPG HPIM2108.JPG HPIM2110.JPG

Hi Rory, thanks again for the picture, yea that makes a nice neat installation, yesterday morning I rounded up a bunch of pipe fitting and I got it figured out it would have been easier if the hood was off but then its to know just how to run the pipe after numerous tries it finally came together and it looks good. Drove the tractor around and it drives nice the trannys both work good it steers very nice so now it on to the finishing touches, new battery maybe a tailight (if I find one I like), a new carb (ordered one last night) install the step I fabricated, trying  decide about the seat I kind of like the one that's on it but the cover is stiff and I can't get it back in place.

Hi all, well the PK is pretty close to being done, have to remove the chloride from the R wheel and remount it so it goes the same as the LH one. Then its to install the Kirk Engines points saver module and one of his battery mats. Installed a new aftermarket carb yesterday boy did that make a nice improvement in engine running, picked up a seat cushion / cover yesterday also and got it put on today. It sure starts and runs good and the tractor drives very good.

Thanks for all of the great photos MNGB. I just bought a 1975 PK with a newer model v-twin Kholer. Still trying to find a number or something on the engine, so I do not know the size or year.I will post a few pics as soon as I can. From what I have read and from how tight the engine fits, this is not the most common change-over.
