Well, I have two of them right now. 16" tires on the rear and 8" on the front. one of mine has tandem transmissions the other a single.One has a 12 horse Kohler the other a 14. Both have the larger 6 inch brakes. One has Fox hydraulics the other has a long hand lift lever. The tandem trans,14horse w/hydraulics I bought as a basket case last summer. It had a broken clutch fork so the PO took it apart left it outside for a couple of years and then decided to sell it. There is a Power King Group with lots of members and info. The one in the picture is getting an engine overhaul. Most parts are available for them

I just bought this one. No pics yet but I'll get some soon. It is a 1962 serial # 9J8711. Do you know how the starter would be put on this tractor?

It probably had a starter generator on it. The picture shows one on a 1969. It is not the same SG as a cub cadet because it turns in the other direction, which is good because they are easier to find. In later years PK used a Kohler engine with a smaller starter mounted on the side where the coil may be mounted. Check and see if there is a small hole 1 1/2" on the side away from the carb.which the starter shaft may have gone thru to hit the toothed flywheel. It would be right in front of the coil in the picture.

I have one with a Briggs, its a rope start. Starts first pull every time. I have no idea how an electric start might fit on it. Better ask the guys on the PK forum I put in my other post.
