I found this power king for 500. 4E4B7790-9A3F-4EA9-B75B-FD01B69462D7_zps A7096FF8-E372-49BD-B1E1-39E8F75F96F1_zps
Is that a bad buy? It suppose to just need a carburetor. Also what would one of them tillers cost for for one of these?

Thanks, Wil

Sounds pretty good deal if runnable?  Air cleaner missing, have that?  Running then or ??  Just rebuild carb, not much in them, kits all-over.  Hydraulics, three point, but not sure on what is called the Mule Drive for the front belt to drive deck. Not sure what those two big rods would be sticking out front. Should be a couple of tension pulleys and supports in that area. Maybe PO made his own drive?  Should be an electric pto on engine flywheel side and those pulleys below then for deck. Deck hangers in front not right?  Need more pictures of that system. Have serial number decal still on it?  One on dash and one on grill top usually. Sometimes numbers are faded off, yet with in-direct light you can see the shapes of numbers on the tags at right angles. Post that to get year. 2nd look, the whole deck is not stock hangers, most missing. Get yourself some manuals for tractor and deck, might be some on here. Not much info in the manuals, but good parts blow-ups to guide you and compare.

Idk if it's running or about the air cleaner, he just said it would run with a new carb. I don't have much experience with small stuff all of my other stuff is big tractors or walk behinds. The mule drive looked funny to me too. Dose anyone have any ideas about the tillers for one of them.

The tillers are a big long shaft that reaches all the way from the back with an enclosed drive-shaft to the front pto, just below engine by front axle. Some went as far as the clutch area and belt off the flywheel area there, but yours should be to the front. Think most of 3pt is also removed and just use the lift arms to pick-up, again diff on some years.  Not so common, but are out there, look around at shows and sales sights. Might have to buy Another whole tractor and set-up to get it tho, heh!  Can't have too many PK's!  I'll check serial for year. Looks like yours is a 1979 year.

Pricing is a local thing but it seems a bit high to me for what is apparently a non-runner.  You could rebuild the carburetor (it appears to have one) and chase down an air cleaner to find out the engine needs a rebuild, hydraulics don't work and the transmission is shot.  You don't say anything about implements that improve the value.

 

At a minimum I'd want to do a compression test and check for spark before getting any where near $500 for it.

Here's some scans of tiller info from my drive. NOTE the mounting in front uses those mount blocks which you have. You didn't say whether the pto was on engine, but belt goes up to it. The rear straps just mount to the existing lift bar on 3pt in back. You remove the lower arms and adjustable links to put it on. Sorry upside down. Can someone fix that?

Hi if it were here in MN for that price it would be in my shop, as far as rebuilding the carb skip that and buy an aftermarket carb off ebay its new they work and are less money than then a rebuilt kit, the cheap simple rebuild kits only have a needle and seat and the gaskets, the carb will almost certainly need a new throttle shaft and bushing and they cost more money then the new carbs, I would see if the seller could come up with the aircleaner parts they will cost almost as much as a carb. If you really want a tiller I look into an Agri-fab pull behind much simpler and easier to find, guys have converted them to sleeve hitch or 3 pt and work good.

MNGB, I had though of that, but I rather have the pk tiller unless they are really high or hard to find.

MNGB, I had though of that, but I rather have the pk tiller unless they are really high or hard to find.

I have one of these tillers on my Jim Dandy  , like was said on mine  it's  a big unit going from the front pulley with belt tension release arm through U-joint into the enclosed driveshaft to the tiller itself . It's not a really tuff job to remove and install but work non the less , I used to change between the tiller , drawbar , snow plow , mower several times a year . But now having other tractors the tiller just stays on . Not sure if it's worth the effort on these or just get a pull behind with it's own motor that's easy to remove


  • MNGB said thank you
