    Early 86 series pto

    I'm getting ready to order a pto rebuild kit for my 1086 and I keep seeing Late 86 series style listed but no Early 86 series style. What's the difference? Mine was made Oct. '76 so it is definitely early but I have never found on here a discussion of what the difference is. I'd rather do it right than do it twice but haven't found an early style listed yet and would rather stay away from dealer if at all possible.

    New to me 1086 - a few questions

    The rubber white trim at the front and back of roof is called Pinch-weld trim. You can find it online pretty cheap in a variety of colors including white.

    Great article but not sure what I can do about it.

    Yep and we'll pay 10 times what we do now as soon as the government involved and entitled cry babies get there "Free Healthcare". As far as the "We as a society" part, You or anyone else are not entitled to another man's labor & knowledge, IE. doctors, nurses, EMT's. Also you do not speak for the society, you speak for yourself as I do. Just for curiosity sake how much more of your income are you prepared to give up so everyone can have "Free Healthcare". 10%, 30%, 60% more? I think before anyone says that the Healthcare for All by government is a good idea they should look at the tax rates of the countries in Europe that have it. And asking the question, Are they personally ready to give up their toys, (boats, motorcycles, etc.) and selling their house since they won't be able to make the mortgage when a quarter to half their paycheck disappears overnight to pay for this. It will be the shortcut to a depression when people default on millions of loans since the income tax will have to sky rocket to pay for it. That's why socialism doesn't work, never has and never will.

    This is just a personal belief of mine so I'm not starting an ideological argument but it's not my responsibility if someone else has health insurance. Just like it's not someone else's responsibility to take care of me or my family's medical bills. Medicaid/Medicare, Social Security was started in the idea of taking care of those who could not take care of themselves, old aged, disabled. Car insurance is a different scenario considering a persons actions could cause personal injury and property damages. Don't think a person can give some one lung cancer, STD's yes, but that's another issue about personal choices and that is what a lot of this comes down to, personal choices. If healthcare is something that is important to someone then they should strive to attain a job that offers it or an income that can afford it. Not complain that Joe Blow down the road has health insurance and I don't so someone else should help pay for mine. Personal accountability and responsibility is going the way of dinosaurs. I believe in helping those who CANNOT help themselves, not those that would rather someone else to do it for them. I think its crazy a new truck could cost 50,60,70,80,90,000$ but they do and my truck has a little of 300,000 on it, I need a new one, it's a basic necessity of life like healthcare, to get to work, to get basic life essentials, Right? So who's gonna chip in and help pay for my new truck? We head down this road of "I ought to have" or "it's a basic human right", where does the entitlements stop?

    This guy was great wasn't he?

    Not to argue with you but I believe in that news report he said " it is the opinion of this news reporter" before he said that the US was no closer to winning the war since before Tet happened the DOD was stating that the Viet Cong was on the ropes. That report he did from Vietnam during the Tet offensive should be on Youtube somewhere. I say this because I think a lot of "talking heads" & "political pundits" confuse themselves with actual news reporters. I think it spoke volumes about Cronkite's character that he stated the facts then intentionally separated his opinion from the facts which doesn't happen anymore these days it seems.

    86 series pto

    Thanks, luckily I have those things already. About the spring activated piston brakes or hydraulic activated, my 1086 is a '76, within the first 3000 made. I'm guessing the early ones were spring activated? Is that a different kit or are all the parts in the same kit?

    Moving centers on axle mount dual rims?

    Called Arc-gouger. Uses copper clad graphite rods. Have used them hundreds of hours. Very effective. Faster than a torch with out super heating the metal long distances from the actual cut. Very easier to burn out or gouge out the old welds or anything else needed to be cut. Will cut through stainless very well also. Just be careful of your surrounding, with the compressed air blowing out the electrode holder head down along the copper clad graphite rods you will blow sparks and molten metal quite a ways. Pretty loud with a distinctive sound too.

    86 series pto

    I went out to check over my 1086 pto a little closer this morning. About 1 out of 5 tries on the pto handle and the shaft will spin 2-3 slow revolutions then stop, other times it does nothing at all. I'm guessing my clutches are gone? Right? Since I'm gonna have to pull out the whole pto chunk in order to totally rebuild it, what other things should I look at and/or replace while I'm there? I don't mind replacing something before it wears out (like pump) since it will already be disassembled and I don't like having to go back into it a second time. Also given the fact that I don't know the history of tractor before I got it, other than it wasn't very well taken care of and left outside all it's life and the hydraulic fluid was about 50% water.
