I just purchased a 1617 power king tractor, transmission already a part, the disk that ride on splined shaft are worn out ; how do I get these parts, also the 6 pins are broke off , are these pins replaceable and new ones pressed back in or do I have to replace with new part. Also I seen on the forum that the clutches on this tractor are the weak part on these tractors, I paid 3 hundred for tractor should I not put any more  money in this thing and let it die,or will a new clutch last. Motor runs great, I want to find front loader and get rid of bob cat, will only pick up saw dust with front loader nothing real heavy, Thanks for your help. poky

Not the greatest model PKs. Hydro's were ok. Trans and clutches go bad on these . Mission Manu in S. Indiana has new parts, won't be any good used ones. They sell whole clutch pak with newer changes, best bet. Pricey items. Should also check input shafts on Trans going into clutch. It is often loose, bearing and seal shot, and oil in clutch is one of big problems then. My opinion, keep or fix the Bobcat!

Welcome to GTTalk. 300$ isn't much to have into a Garden Tractor these days. Price up the new parts you need and if it's too much for you there is sure to be someone who will take it off your hands.
