  1. 1688 automatic header

    On a 1688 do you have to manually increase header drop rate by turning a bolt on the valve? Drop rate can make auto header act funny especially if set too slow. Good luck.
  2. Need ideas

    I would check the operator proximity switch in the seat for sure. If it was jumpered to make Inop at some time in the past, the jumper may be making intermittent contact. Good luck. This type of problem can be frustrating when the crop is fit to go!
  3. Happy Birthday

    Thanks!
  4. Baling rotary straw with an 8460

    If you could turn two windrows together it might help. New 1206's idea about 2/3 throttle and keeping the volume coming in works well with our Heston baler. Good luck.
  5. This is the first time I ever heard of an extension kit for the '86 series. I owned three different 86's over the years and heard some folks bemoan the "choppy" ride. I enjoyed the visibility of the cab forward design and never thought the ride was any worse than the '06 or '66 series I was used to. The visibility was sooo much better than the 30 and 40 series deeres of the era. Thanks for posting.
  6. 2366

    Before you take the rad off, I would snug up all the hose clamps and check the sending unit in the top tank for seepage. Good luck.
  7. 826--Cat 2 or 3 hitch?

    I know the pins are larger on cat.3. Think cat. 3 is longer too.
  8. Mx120 loader question

    Yep. Sharp unit. I had one with the 770 and now have a 2002 model with 760. Are you using the joystick in the cab? We have trouble with the plastic caps breaking off the cable ends in the joystick. Not a pleasant job to replace the cable. Spendy too.
  9. Mx120 loader question

    Sounds like a little air in the system. Try a few cycles of maximum cylinder travel to see if it helps. Good luck.
  10. 706D....310 or 282 engine?

    Iirc there once was a roosa conversion for the Bosch ep, but I have never seen one in real life. I really like the d310 in my 756 for the same reasons already stated.
  11. Super MTA camshaft bushings

    I used a brake cylinder hone to fit the camshaft bearings on a 400 last winter. Went slow, used kerosene for honing oil and checked the fit frequently. First set I ever did so can't say if that is normal. Has good oil pressure.
  12. 79-1586 digital tach.

    Check the wiring connection to the oil pressure switch first. If that doesn't fix it, pull the tach unit itself and clean the harness connection with contact cleaner and compressed air. This procedure always fixed "crazy tach" syndrome on the 86's I owned. Good luck.
  13. Belly pump

    The belly pump is driven from the front of the transmission countershaft through a little steel coupler. Your doner tractor should have the coupler and as far as I know, all the letter series have the fixture to drive it on the countershaft. They can be a little hard to get lined up when installing the pump. Good to have a helper. Good luck.
  14. 2388 wastegate change

    The smoke on throttle up would be due to the aneoroid on the inj pump rather than the turbo wastegate. Not sure if a 2188 has one, but I know the 2388 does. All a wastegate does is limit turbocharger boost.
  15. 560 Hydraulic

    The pump probably lost prime. If you can drive the tractor into a ditch to get it nose low it will usually pick up. Overfilling the reservoir helps too. Good luck.
