My name is Brian, my late father was active on this board over the last decade or two. I joined the site just to make this post. Without getting long-winded, dad passed last June and we're putting all of his Power King tractors, parts, and implements up for sale. Figured I'd start here, since I know at least one of the tractors he found by being a part of the community here, and y'all are most likely to be interested. Will be advertised locally on Craigslist as well. Tractors are located in the Nashville, TN area.
I'll list as much as I can think of, but please realize there's probably going to be a lot of small parts and things that I won't be able to identify or itemize. It's pretty obvious when I find a PK part for the most part because nothing else on the property is that shade of orange. I have pics of the "big stuff", but not of each and every part. Please understand that I want to get rid of ALL of it at once. I'm not interested in splitting up the lot at this time.
Start with the tractors:
1975 1614 that has had the 16hp Kohler engine swap. Engine was painted/overhauled (rings/bearings/gaskets) prior to installation, hours noted on the bottom side of the hood. 48" deck with rebuilt spindles. 3-point hitch. Hydraulic lift. Single transmission. Front wheel weights. Hood repainted with new decals, deck repaired and painted. Running and usable. This was the tractor dad was actively using, and I have used it to mow with in the last 6 months.
197x? 2418 18hp Kohler OHV. Rebuilt/painted 48" deck. 3-point hitch. Hydraulic lift. Single transmission. This tractor was running and usable, drove to where it sits, but has been sitting for a number of years and at a minimum will need the points filed and likely a carburetor cleaning. Currently no spark to the plug, but has good compression. I ran this tractor briefly a few years ago and the apparently finicky 18hp engine ran great with no issues.
19xx?? 2418 18hp Kohler OHV parts tractor. No deck, no hood. Hydraulic lift, single transmission. I assume this is a later model than the other 2418 due to the wider brake pedals. Dad bought this one because of those and intended to restore it using the other 2418 for parts. Engine condition unknown, however it does turn by hand and has been wrapped up/covered by a tarp.
All of these implements, with the exception of the turning plow, had been cleaned/painted/repaired where needed, and are in addition to the 2 mower decks that are attached to the 2 complete tractors.
I don't have pics of: (but can provide later if interested)
Box scraper (cleaned and painted-minor use)
Disc harrow (cleaned and painted-minor use)
Turning plow (usable, but has not been cleaned or painted)
Boom/lift pole--homemade, about 5' long to use as a small hoist with hydraulic lift. (cleaned and painted)
60" mower deck (cleaned and painted)
Several boxes of various parts and pieces. I know there are 3-point hitch parts, spindles, a gas tank or two, and importantly, dad was assembling parts to convert one to a dual transmission. There's a cleaned/painted transmission with shifter (it's a front shifter, not the angled rear shifter), and I'm pretty sure all of the necessary parts to do the conversion. There may or may not be a piece or two missing, but as I recall he had managed to either fabricate or acquire everything necessary for the conversion. It's all in one box marked as such. Spare 14hp (K321?) Kohler that came off of the 1614. Was running and usable when removed, dad just wanted the extra 2hp. I think there may be one more NOS steering wheel as well, will verify that today (1/29/17). I have all the parts I've found stacked in one pile in the garage, will add more if I find any.
Bottom line is this: We've sold the old homeplace, and have to have the contents cleared out by July. I'd like to get rid of ALL the PK stuff in one lot. If it's PK and on the property, it needs to go. Bring your truck and trailer, load it up, and drive away. I know Dad had several thousand dollars tied up in all of these, but in the interest of making them disappear and reducing any headaches for Mom to have to deal with, I'll sell it lock stock and barrel for $3500 cash. I am not interested in splitting up the lot at this time. All or nothing.
I can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via PM on this site, assuming it will let me send/receive them, this being my first post. Tractors/parts are located in the Nashville, TN area.
