  1. I pulled the clutch access plate. No parts laying inside and I can't see the clutch disc center for the throwout bearing. I can hear a change in engine sound when the clutch is released but that may just be the ta dump valve seating. The lube pressure light is not working despite a working bulb. I suspect a broken wire; I did check the lube pressure switch continuity and it opens the circuit shortly after starting so there is lube pressure. I wouldn't be surprised if the sprag is out of the ta as this tractor was fairly ragged when I got it.
  2. Good evening, I've got a closed center 1086 that quit moving in the field. The operator said that he pulled the ta back, hit the brake and she just stopped. No forward motion in any direction regardless of ta position. I pulled her back to the farm with moderate steering response at full throttle but nothing at idle. We tested the MCV at the safety valve (didn't have the right fitting for the lube regulator) at 2400 rpm. TA = 240psi Middle position = 220 DD = 240 Steering to stops = 240 It'll be Monday before I can get a fitting to check lube pressure too. Anybody have any suggestions about what might be going on? Thanks- James
  3. I'm looking for a factory reproduction muffler for a Farmall A, and I can't remember who makes them. I'm not a fan of the Stanley mufflers and I seem to recall a Red Power advertiser that started making them to factory specs. Anybody have a link?
  4. Thanks everyone for the ideas! I plan to start working on it tonight and will post back when I find the culprit.
  5. It seems like the issue is in the hub to axle placement. It does wobble slightly side to side but most of the issue is non coincentric to the axle.
  6. The 856 is getting a new pair of rear tires this week. Now seems like a good time to try and rectify the whomp-whomp-whomp in road gear. Based on my crude flat bar and vise grip measurements, one wheel is roughly 1" out of round and the other is slightly more. It doesn't sound like much, but when they get in sync (more so out of sync), it can be a violent ride above 11mph with a 300 gal 3 pt sprayer. I've had the wedge locks off before to narrow to 30" rows and the problem was noticably worse afterwards. It is not noticable when the axle mount duals are on, but I don't want the duals for post emerge spraying. Any suggestions on how to better center these wheels?
