1980 2418/14 Powerking Restoration - Did it my way

I asked in a previous thread if I should restore my tractor to factory specs or make it my own. I decided to change a few things and make it my own but still keep it looking factory. Hydraulic unit valve and tank can be removed as a unit and set on the ground without removing any hoses. Suction and discharge lines are stainless steel tubing. Hood latches are stainless steel from McMaster Karr. Handbuilt bumper and front tow hitch. Paint is NAPA commercial coatings, Allis Chambers orange (good high quality paint). I changed the troublesome 18 to a 14 hp, make a carb adapter plate to mount the 18 hp air cleaner. Last photo is John Deere mule disks that I adapted to fit Powerking Drawbar. I pull the disks in second gear and build great rows!

Very nice job on that PowerKing! Those mods just make it that much more reliable and easier to use, never a bad thing in my book.
