  1. I don't know much about your model tractor since I have an 86 series but if I remember correct from reading older post it sounds like your pump hasn't primed. There is a plug on the outside of pump that can be removed that will help it prime quick. Hopefully someone with experience with this problem will narrow it down for you.
  2. There is a fight now, in New Orleans. A fight for votes. I'm not gonna dump on liberal or conservative, it's all over the news. Do your own research and come to your own conclusion. I'm my mind since for better or worse I am a son of Louisiana, this is a vote buying scheme. One just has to research the mayor, his family, his ex-senator sister and others. We would say Louisiana politics as usual, but sure to spread nationwide, eventually.
  3. I thought about Washington when the talk of removing Andrew Jackson being removed from the 20$ since he implemented legislation that led to the Cherokee being forced from the Carolinas in Trail of Tears. Washington was given a the name "Town Destroyer" by the Seneca in the 1750's and decimated the Indian tribes that sided with British during Revolution. A majority of historical figures would fall short in some way of today's "professed media and political standards". I think that judgment on all historical figures should be reserved until an understanding of the times and circumstance they lived in. Just as future generations will not understand the "goings on" of today. Even Abraham Lincoln gave some speeches in the 1850's in Illinois while running for office would shock some people because he made statements about slavery that stand in direct contrast to how his legacy is now presented in most books. I didn't mean to hijack thread when I mentioned the New Orleans monuments, but it's going on now and my son and I took our picture in front of one last year when we went down there and it was the first thing came to mind when I saw the picture Hydro70 posted. Hope it never happens to that obelisk and wish I would have known I could have went up it when I was up there. I spent a year working in a little town called Bedford, Kentucky across the river from Madison, Indiana building a power plant back in 08-09. That area of the country is about the only other place I'd be willing to live outside of where I do now.
  4. Relocating in pieces. The work is happening after midnight and the workers are wearing masks and protective gear. A few local schools and institutions showed interest until ultra-liberal groups and BLM threatened violent protest like has happened in California colleges lately.
  5. I've driven by that before, didn't know I could have went up it. Wonder when they will tear it down in the middle of the night like the 4 monuments in New Orleans to Jefferson Davis, General Beauregard, Gen Robert E. Lee, and the fourth commemorating the battle of Liberty Place. What a shame, all in an attempt to achieve a PC world.
  6. I hope someone here has some tips/advice or stories concerning using the 800 in milo, I am also going to plant milo in the future and I already have a JD 7100 plate planter that needs rebuilt and have thought it would be cheaper to buy a good 800/900 planter to use but I don't know how well an 800/900 would work with milo or of any changes or updates would need to be done to planter.
  7. Thanks for the answer, mine's a '76 so I'll check the valve in mine as well. The ticking in mine is slight and doesn't sound like a bearing but I'll check filters just to be safe. I seen this word intravance mentioned in older post also and you'll have to forgive my ignorance but what exactly is intravance?
  8. Do 1086's have that check valve? Or is that just on 66 series? I hear a slight tick from my tractor but it's hard for me to pinpoint since my hearing isn't the best. I've already adjusted my valves on engine because of ticking in the valve train and that went away. I have good oil pressure on start up and after its warm it runs 40-70 lbs (which I hope is a sign my crank and rod bearings are good). Didn't know if the ticking I have heard was normal engine noises, me just being paranoid or what it was.
  9. Don't know if this may help but I had a tractor of another color with a Koyker front end loader and it had 6 bolt hubs also. The tractor was only 70 hp so it didn't come with 8 bolt hubs. I never tore up the hubs or front end but I did have cracks form on the rim running thru and around the bolt holes. Was told the round bales I was moving for the horses was too much for them and that I needed to go to 8 bolt hubs and rims to hold the weight. I got rid of the horses instead and saved a ton of money on having to get hay and new hubs.
  10. I was wondering why 2 different was may have been used. Or if the one I had may have been off something else. Hopefully someone here knows which one is right or why 2 different ones were used.
  11. Thanks Lorenzo for the info. Any idea whether the all black face tachometer is correct for a '76 1086? Or is the one that is white at the bottom is the right one? When I Google for pictures of one all I get are ones with white background on bottom while the one that I took off is all black background, top and bottom.
  12. OK, Thanks. I'll look them up online. As far as the lens and parts, I was gonna take the lens, knob and trim ring off the new tachometer I had already bought. When I got the tractor it was in horrible shape. My Dad got it from someone who owed him money in attempt to recoup some of his money. After he looked it over it was more of a project than he was interested in so he gave it to me. After I noticed tach wouldn't work I just went ahead and ordered a new tach and cable and of course after it was all said and done it turned out to be the tach drive on injection pump was wallowed out so now I have extra parts. I did notice the original tachometer (or at least it was on tractor when I got it) has a black face and the replacement tachometer has a white face. My 1086 was made AUG 76, does anyone know which tach style is correct? Or how many mechanical tachometer styles or faces were used on the 86 series before they went digital?
  13. In the process of fixing up my 1086 ROPS, I replaced the original tach since the lens was so hazy yellow I couldn't see anything and the chrome trim was rusted to pieces. I took apart the old tach to see how many hours it had on it and was surprised internally it appeared in good shape with 4367 hours on it, although it has spent it's entire life outside here in the deep south. I would like to use the original tach and just replace the lens/knob and the cosmetic pieces and remember in some old post that someone spoke of a business who did refurbish tachometers somewhere up in the midwest. Has anyone on here know of anyone who does this type of work and be able to calibrate/check or repair the old tach so I may be able to use the original and keep an accurate tally of my hours. The tractor was given to me by my Dad whose been gone a year now and it will never leave the homeplace, so I'm not trying to "Doctor" the hours or anything like that and I don't want to take it apart myself and screw something up. Just wondering if any of y'all may have had done business with anyone who may do this type of restoration/refurbish work. Thanks, Jonathan
  14. I ordered mine from Porch Electric for my 1086. I was impressed with the quality and how it matched original wiring.
  15. Do you remember who sells the aftermarket oversized ball?
