 Its a model 2414. Model year 1973, possibly? Bought it non running off Ebay. Only took a couple days to get her running again though. Pulled head. Had about 1/2" of water in cylinder. Cleaned it up, lapped the valves, cleaned the carb. and fuel tank. Put new fuel line/filter and points on and it fired right up.

Definitely goingto need a new seat. Need to find a fuel cap as well. Was missing when I got it. Tank was nasty inside. Hydraulics work. Missing a lot of the rear hitch. Probably and up building one. Should be a nice tractor when its done.

That will be a nice tractor when done.  Did you get the hood with it?  If you find the serial number, please post it and we'll be able to tell you the year exactly.  My guess is a 69 or 70.  73 would be a real stretch but it's not completely out of the question though highly unlikely  72 was the transition year where you will find both short hood (yours) and long hood models produced at the same time.  There could be a stray 73 looking like that but I really doubt it.  Model is simply "Power King".  This was a time where the number system still wasn't in effect, however, 2414 does describe it better.  Good luck with your new toy.

 Great info. Thanks. No serial tag on it. Didn't come with a hood. What would the hood look like on this model?

You may run into problems with this plan. It doesn't look as if your tractor is set up for a three point. There should be a thick vertical bar on each side attached to the final drive covers. These bars would be where your lower arms connect. They go straight down at the axle center. Going by fading memory here

I made the picture bigger and I can see a piece of one of the bars now. You are good to go. Good luck.

Hood?  Hood is on it in My pictures!  What you guys looking at?  Time to shop ebay!  Lots of stuff for PK's on there.  Lot at tractor swaps too, just go to some and look around.  I was wondering on hood as it has a screen over where the pulley should be coming thru and no pulley mounted then. Thot that was standard cept when had electric pto, but then again that was longer hood. What gives on that?

That's the gas tank, not the hood.
