PostSubject: Need Ideas for RANCH KING mud mower   Fri Oct 25, 2013 10:15 am

I recently picked up a 1991 Ranch King w/18 hp Briggs opposed twin. It has a seized motor and rearend I want to get this running and put some nice tires, gas pedal, custom exhaust on it. I need help with ideas and how-to's to get this thing on the trails. Any fun ideas would be greatly appreciated and considered. Thanks, Rallyroper1985

WELCOME!!! Pictures would be very helpful but the ranch kings are awesome tractors. But for the siezed motor try pulling the plugs and putting some marvels mystery oil down the cylinder over night.

Both the engine AND the rearend are locked solid? Was this thing onboard Titanic when it went down? That's just bizzarre! Are you not able to roll the engine over by hand, with or without the plugs installed? How about that transaxle- have you manually attepted to move anything?

Yes, they are both locked solid. this sat under a collapsed shed for about 8 years. Just pulled it out with some other mowers... I will post pictures sometime
