  1. So my Grandfather purchased a 1086 new in 77’. It has worn duals it’s whole life and has one 6 hole cast center and one 12 hole cast center. Uncle said that one Wedge lock got sloppy and was replaced somewhere along the line. I’m 95% sure it came with 12 hole centers but I know I have seen them either way. Danny’s #1 has 6 hole centers if I remember correctly. Are either one correct for an earlier tractor like a 1977 model? Were they just using up what parts they had? Any insight?
  2. Well they are cleaned up and ready for fall. They all have original paint for the most part. 706 may have had some spots repainted or touched up its hard to tell. I did repaint the rear rims on the 1086. The 7120 is a 1988 with 8600hrs and has 100% original paint. I believe I'm the 3rd owner of the 7120 and 1086. Nothing special but they are mine and they are paid for.
  3. Ready to install my pto after rebuild and can't remember which direction the pto shaft couplings go. One end has splines to the end and on the other the splines are inset. Which direction should it be turned? I hope the pictures uploaded.
  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
  5. 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????
  6. I am attempting to convert the AC in my 1066 deluxe cab to the 86 series condenser. I have a hydro and it seems like the oil cooler is very large, I dont know if the hydro oil coolers are larger than the gear tractors, but it seems like they should. Anyway, the 86 series condenser wont fit in enough to put the grill back on. has anyone had to make any modifications to get the 86 series condenser to fit and still be able to get the grill back in? any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  7. 3 of the 5 86,s. My redpower 1486 left,1086 with 2500 hrs,and my Dads early 78 1486 with 13500 hrs. Missing are 2 other 1486 one mine other Dads
  8. I am including a picture of some of the linkages inside my 1086 and am wondering if the piece marked is supposed to be attached to something. It is an open-center hyd. system if that matters and the draft and position controls are both all the way forward with exception of the position control, it is not pushed down into the lowest slot of the quadrant.
  9. I live About 50 Miles South of San Antonio. can any one recommend a good mechanic for my IH 1086. Having problem finding correct parts and mechanic locally. Local Case/IH dealer parts don't fit or mechanic has no clue. Any recommendations, suggestions. I am new to the 1086. Since retirement I have moved back to the country. clearing mesquites, planting pasture and raising long horns. guess you can say this is an expensive hobby. Getting to old for the heavy lifting, but making a lot of repairs and upgrades myself. Need a good mechanic when I get over my head.

    1086 Gages

    This one is complicated. at least for me. Engine running in both pictures. Key Off Above The Coolant Temp and Fuel gauge will not work with the key ON but the fuel gauge works with key OFF. Temp gauge only worked for 2 days. have another posting on the issue Fuel Gauge is Correct. main tank almost empty auxiliary full Key On Below Any Thoughts will be appreciated.
  11. Where is the temperature sending unit. My IH dealer says it is in the head? They have been wrong on every thing I have done with them. gage kept pegged to the left. put a new gauge and it is pegged to the right. Have several questions so will past them separately.
  12. I put 2 new Optima yellow top D34/78 batteries in my 1086 in July. They will not hold a charge. Must admit I have left the key on but I have NO lights or accessories. having trouble recharging them. so I bought a Optima 400 charger. it will charge to about 25% just enough for the starter to growel low. after 24 hours the charger tells me it can not charge check batteries. both batteries indicate 12.5 which is top range of my little meteor. Optima tells me that I have to disconnect the batteries and charge each separately, because 2 batteries creates a 24 volt system. 1086 and my truck
