I'm posting this here because the Terramite section seems to be dead and this is more of a Power King than a Terramite IMO.
I stumbled across this site by accident while looking for info on a Power King Terramite I bought. I was shocked when I did a Google image search and there was my tractor, chained to the same tree where I bought it. It was posted here;
So I joined the site and I figured I may as well post up and see if I can get some advice. Here is what I bought;
Not exactly a Gem but what do you want for $300
The best I can tell it's a T-2 Terramite. Despite the way it looks, the frame, loader and backhoe of the tractor are straight and in good condition. No obvious welding anywhere and the pins are tight with very little wear. The most amazing thing is only 2 or 3 of the cylinders show ANY pitting. The plan is to find a halfway decent donor tractor and transfer most everything over.
I'm a little torn on the plan from there. I want to use this thing when it's done but I like the cool factor of it being old. I thinking kinda a resto Mod. keep the old look but add some newer functionality, IE power steering and joystick controls.
Which bring me to my first question, Has anyone ever beefed up the front end on a PK? One of my spindles is bent pretty good and I'd like to prevent that in the future.
