  1. Love my tandem dual Load Max
  2. Not that I'm aware of. Tried finding the internals for the tach drive on my 1486 at the tail end of last year with no luck; bought a new assembly from Messicks.
  3. First time I've heard of doing this, but that's a great idea! Gotta remember this for future use Thanks everyone for the confirmation!
  4. Can anyone confirm the diameter and thread pitch for the bolts in the cast grille shell on the 86 series tractors? 5/8"-11 seems right, but I'd like to make darn sure before I go buy a tap to clean the threads out.
  5. I'm jealous of your V ripper... Been trying to find one down here, but they've pretty much been phased out
  6. PM Injpumped, he can get you exactly what you need
  7. Definitely falls under hack job category imo. But, if anyone wants to watch it happen ...
  8. Wow! I'm definitely jealous... I'd be thrilled just to see it up close!
  9. Anyone keeping a list of the 1486? or 86s in general?
  10. I've run a JD 567 with a 986; works very well in average crop. When windrows become balled up form rake or wind, it can be slightly more difficult moving back and forth to pick it up without clogging the baler. Prior to the neighbor getting a Kubota M105X, the 986 had been the workhorse and baling tractor as long as I had been around (20+ years). In general, I prefer to use the 986. Hydraulic shuttle is nice on the 105, but overall electronics on the tractor can be a hassle; when the tractor works, it works well. When it's grumpy, you'll know it. Custom baling is definitely not a get-rich-quick operation, but if you can turn a small profit while paying for equipment maintenance, then all the work you do for yourself is at nearly 0 cost with the exception of your time. As mentioned earlier, be selective with who you do work for; they need to pay their bill and have decent fields that won't destroy your equipment.
  11. Perfect! Thanks for taking a look; that was exactly the information I needed!
  12. All States shows 2 sleeves: and Seems that the only difference could be material (machined steel vs casting maybe)? The first link indicates for both aspirated and non-aspirated, which leads me to believe there's no dimensional differences. Darn sleeve completely slipped my mind when I ordered the turbo from you. lol
  13. My dad was just able to send me this picture of the original turbo set back on the manifold with eliminator pipe mocked up; looks like I'll still need the sleeve.
  14. My dad will get it and put it in a safe place. I'm hoping he'll get a chance to take a closer look at it for me.
  15. I've got a new S2E on its way from Injpumped for my 1486 with original aspirated muffler. I also have the appropriate muffler eliminator from Thomure Mfg. that will be going on at the same time. I'm needing to order some various other parts from All States Ag Parts and would like to get everything at once... so, my question is: do I need the exhaust sleeve spacer for this combo? The original is seized pretty tight in the muffler. I'm hoping to have all my ducks in a row when I'm back at the tractor after Thanksgiving; I'm in Tomball and it's in La Grange. Any help is greatly appreciated!
