  1. 86 series Hydraulic TA problems

    Funny you should mention the clutch as I forgot to mention that the pedal does seem quite low when the engine is running but seems to be normal when switched off. Figured it might have something to do with it being a hydraulic assisted clutch but as i said earlier i dont know that much about these tractors. What made me think of the ta was it likes to run away on the hills (mostly in h3 or h4) and I've never known a main clutch to do this. The 786 of my fathers has never had any issues probably due to the extremely low 1900 odd hours on it. From memory the main difference with the Australian B series is the heavier linkage arms. But there is heaps of small little things like extra mirrors, sun visors, pistol grip shifters and such. Thanks again Lachlan
  2. 86 series Hydraulic TA problems

    So finally got this machine home and found a few more TA symptoms for the experts. Whilst driving around I have found that it does loke to freewheel down hills and yesterday whilst driving it up a steep hill found that it will also loose drive in both sides of the TA so much so that i ended up going in reverse back down the hill. I am yet to order a workshop manual for this machine so any recomendations on which one is the best is greatly appreciated. As for the rest of the tractor , it all seems to be quite a good machine, shifts nicely, and operates as it should. Only downfall is the usual rust in the cab. Unfortuatly I cannot take ownership of the 786B in front as it is my fathers but it sure did make for a nice photo

    Just an update, I have bought the tractor with the idea of the TA being shot which most likely will get fixed one day. Im a mechanic at the local agco dealer so hopefully should be able to do it all myself. Other than the TA the tractor seems in really good mechanical condition, it just has a few patches of rust in the cab that will need to be cut out and replaced. I would just like to thank everyone for their input. Lachlan

    Thanks everyone for their replies, so in the worst case scenario the TA is out will it hurt anything if the machine is driven like that until it gets fixed? And how much work is it to replace one? Thanks Lachlan
  5. Hi all, after searching the web and the forum I finally decided to create a new topic. To get down to basics I have found my self looking at an 886 which was a former family tractor. The tractor has recently come up for sale with only 4600 hrs on it, so i went and had a look at it today. My main issue is with the TA; when changing between either speed you cannot feel any speed change. The lever has plenty of resistance and sort of snapping feel to it so I was thinking that it probably wouldn't be a cable issue, but i could be wrong too. Just looking for any ideas as to what could be wrong with it before purchasing as I have never had anything to do with one. Thanks in advance Lachlan
