  1. 986 coolant leak

    Could be..but not entirely sure..I do know that there is probably only about 1/8" gap between the radiator and the superstructure...not a whole lot wiggle room...flip your radiator mounts upside down also..if you look at them you might notice that they "dropped" within the rubber from years of down pressure from the weight
  2. Another simple 986 question

    IF...you get a replacement starter make darn sure it spins the correct way...some places think an international tractor is a truck tractor and not a farm tractor....

    Make sure your radiator mounts are good..if they are garbage they will allow the radiator to come in contact with the cast iron at the bottom of the radiator. We had the same problem with our 1086..took it out and brazed a good heave piece of brass shim stock on it as well as replacement of the mounts

    First off...I gotta say I'm really hesitant on posting this...but here goes... I was cleaning up the garage and I noticed an odd clip...laying on my bench under a pair of gloves...needless to say appitite did a nose dive....I forgot to put the retaining clip on the IPTO shaft that keeps the bearing in place...sooo...guess what I did this afternoon.....yup. Split the tractor AGAIN...at least it went easy...2 1/2 hrs..from fully dressed to fully dressed and running...feel like a real tool.... Point being... make a clean and organized work area... Mike

    Did not realize that there would have been a difference :-(

    Had a couple spare Jack's laying around....only additional thing needed is a spreader to make sure the casters stay running true to one another

    Yup...I'd say that the splines are stripped out....

    Got it in and undressed her..making a new/better set of stands...hope to crack in in half tomorrow evening

    would there be any visible signs of the splines being stripped? I took the inspection cover off and did not notice anything out of the ordinary. Just because I like to pessimistic in these kinds of situations...anybody ever see a situation where the large gear on the end of the shaft was shot? thus taking out what drives it?

    Just got it home...no steering, clutch Was iffy, no pto, and no hitch. Anything to look at just to make sure...I couldn't see anything from the bottom inspection plate.

    Sigh.... unfortunately..my to-do list is greater than time allows...and since starting a new job..my time off is very limited...plus moving my little girl off to college and....plus with fair my days off are already spoken for...

    Since I got to split this dang thing...may as well put new clutch in it ...huh?...the hollow shaft..what else does it power?
  15. 1086 hydraulics
