  1. Found the Hitch drop rate adjustment in the users manual on page 51. Can not locate it in the Chassis manual or parts manual. have traced the linkage to the 3 point but have no idea where the Pressure Flow hydraulic system is. Where is this turkey located?? THANKS!! Needless to say I have NO idea what I am doing, But learning!
  2. Yes have the chassis repair manual and the parts book
  3. The TA handle on my 1086 is disconnected just inside the firewall. It has been that way since I bought it. If I reconnect the rod to test it. What am I looking for and will I break anything????
  4. New song same dance. Working my 1086. primarily using for root plowing and box blade stump ripping. Seems like every time I start there will find a new problem of some sort big or little. learning how to fix a bunch of them my self. First. Hydraulic filter is NEW, Fluid is FULL, Fluid is clear and fresh (I keep bursting steel hydraulic lines). (Minor leaks (as with all original older tractors) but nothing major. This one is intermittent (started before filter change). when I start the day the 3 point lifts and drops at the flick of the lever. As the day progresses the lift works great but the drop will take from 15 to 20 count to drop, often missing my intended target. Can work around it but a pain in the &($%$$#. Any ideas???

    1086 won't Turn off

    Hay guys thanks. No bent cable. Adjusted the cable on the left side of the engine which altered the lever pull. tried it but didn't work. since it rained last night bounced it around a stubborn stump and returned. wala after bouncing on the stump. the lever came all the way down and worked like a charm. Seems like bouncing the 1086 is part of the process. LOL Unfortunately stump still there
  6. been fixing many things on my 1086. Still don't know what I am doing but learning. Current Problem. Came in yesterday from Root Stump plowing Turned key off (I know it doesn't do any thing) Pulled the Governor , Shut-off control leaver down all the way to turn to engine off and nothing happened. Traced the lever to where could manually accelerate the engine but see nothing that stops the engine. Where does stopping the engine happen. Finally closed the fuel cut off into the fuel filters to stop it. Can't find anything in the manuals that address this. THANKS in advance.
  7. Sure you are correct. Origional john deer plow blade lasted 100 feet. Had to buy antique blade and larger harder bolts. What will a used unit like this cost. I am still a newbe. This is my retirement hobby.
  8. I have a kuboto 3240. It is totaly unreluable and down more than it is up. Also will only sink the plow 3" at times. Dont need 1086 but is runs and quick hitch and 3 point setting is heavy enough to sink the plow.
  9. Welding is my current Learning challenge. guess this could be a good project to learn on. Are you suggesting to widen the cat 1 plow?? THANKS!!
  10. Just put a quick hitch on my 1086. Is a cat 2 with 36" span for the pins. I use a middle buster or potato plow to lay pipe in texas. My cat 1 plow wont fit with 30" span. Having problems finding 3 point plow that fits. Any ideas?
  11. House voted for a good Fix. Requires 60 votes in the Senate. we did/do not have that from republicans. so NO republicans have not controlled the senate. if you believed the mexico will pay for the wall I have a scrap pile to sell you and call it an new IH. that was campaigning. and I think the new Trade agreement with mexico will actually pay for a wall
  12. If He backs down now the same thing will happen as with Reagan. we will all be screwed. "WE" elected him to make waves and fix problems. And yes the wall will help but is not the total answer. So get behind America!!!!
  13. Both sides get to much money from outsiders. needs to stop!!
