I know a guy who is looking for some 16" 5-hole wheels!
The front (5 hole/lug wheels) are 10"s(on turf tires) 12"s(on Ags) on the originals (I believe)....and the JD755's are 12"s on the fronts.

So they probably wouldn't work for your friends need.

Only the 16" rears are 6 bolt/lug.

Hi all,

New to the forum!

After searching for info on a 79 Power King that I bought a couple days ago the search brought me here. I saw this tractor on Craigslist while searching for a garden tractor to do a little plowing for a small garden. I am really starting to enjoy this tractor and hope to start getting it in the shape of some the nice looking tractors I have saw posted on here. I changed the oil today and bought a new air filter and muffler and am going to change the trans and rear tomorrow. It needs tires bad but other than that it fires right up and runs great and can't wait to tear into some ground with it soon!

Just recently picked up my first Power King, a 1980-2418. It came with 4' mower deck, 4' front blade, 12" brinly 3-pt plow & a full set of wheel weights: Tractors 2016 045.JPG

It does have a bad ding in the hood that somebody tried to fix with a hammer: Tractors 2016 072.JPG

Since then, I've painted the wheels & front weights, added a new seat & front tires: Tractors 2016 070.JPG

I made a 3-pt carry-all for Chief to ride in during the annual trail ride: Tractors 2016 079.JPG

Just fits my 1980 Snowco trailer: Tractors 2016 113.JPG

Overall, it appears to be lightly used & in pretty good condition. The plan is for a complete re-paint after this year's show season is over next month!

I have this 1984 1217 and a1981 1212. Been using the 81 for 35 years. Just got the 1984 and working on fixing some details. Doss anyone know how to wire a new Amp gauge? And my charging system is not working. Where is the resistor/condenser located? Any other tips?
Thanks, Hef
