First off, how misleading was the seller?
Next, I agree that you can't do much better than the Kohler K for this application.
Also, I wouldn't jump to buy another trans. Check and see how much wear it has. It may only need cleaned with kerosene and refilled with trans fluid. If it needs rebuilt, that's not a bad job and is preferable to buying another worn trans.


The seller (a friend) was not misleading. I saw the tractor in his yard and asked how much. He said a grand and one trans is stuck in gear. I said ok. I took the cover off the bad tranny and the main shaft has play in the front end. Maybe I can just rebuild it with new bearings and seals. Not sure yet.

Hi Bob, looking at the picture in your first post it looks like the tractor has a 3 pt hitch is that right? If so the first year for 3 pts was 1975, as for a data tag they did not use a metal tag but rather a decal with the serial number inked on it and many did not make it thur the years. If it had a 3 pt can you post some pictures of it?


Yes the tractor does have a 3 point hitch. Not the raisable hitch bar, but a hitch with the ball socket ends and chains to stop the swaying back and forth. I'll get a picture of it.

Thanks for your input.

This is an eBay picture but it is the exact 3 point hitch I have. Even the adjuster screw and flat handle are the same. So I'm not sure if this is a clue to the year of the tractor or not.

So far it seems to be a 1975 or newer due to having the 3 point.

Does not have electronic ignition. Is that a clue?

Also, my PK has this square corner type of loader bucket. I noticed some loader buckets are round. Can this be a clue as to the age?

And here are a couple pics of the tiller. Any guesstimate on value? It appears to be in good condition.

Hi they used that style 3 pt for about 2 years 1975 & 76 and no electronic ignition no clues but you are lucky not to have, since you have your tractor dissembled you can check on the left frame rail near where the clutch pedal would be sometime the SN was stamped in that area. Your tractor should be a 75 /76 model yr.

Hi yes that narrows it down to 1975 model years not just the loader bucket but that model of loader looks like 1975 was the last year of that style.

MNGB,

Thank you so much for those brochures. Looks like it is a 1975. First chance I'll look to see if there are any S/N on the frame.

Again, thanks to all for your help.

Bob

Congrats on the tractor, looks like you will have a nice machine when you get it done. If your tractor has the s/n on the frame it will be on the top, right were you would want to rest your foot when it's not on the clutch. It will be welded on, not stamped, and by welded I mean they wrote it with the welder. My Jim Dandy has it but not all do. It was something one of the welders for the company did on his own. Good luck on the project.

First, thank you all for your responses and help getting started on this project. Greatly appreciated.

Does anyone have an idea what a fair price is on the tiller? I keep looking but can't find any for sale to compare.

Thanks

Bob

Price depends on your location and the demand for economy/ power king equipment. Most members on here don't like to give a price because of this. I don't like giving out advice as far as price either but I will help you out. What might bring 300 in one state may only be worth 150 in another. I gave 150 for one a few years ago BUT that was in Indiana and it is in rough shape. I would store yours till March and then put it on craigslist or the sale section here on the forum. I would think that you could get 250 or 300 out of it because of its nice shape. BUT I say again price depends on location. Good luck.
