    South Texas 1086 Mechanic

    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 cab removal

    So some hoses under the cab on Dads 1086 started leaking really bad and the only way to get at them is to remove the cab. So we are wondering what is involved in removing the cab and how long it would take to remove it. We are hoping someone that has done this before could give us some pointers on the best way to do it. Any information is greatly appreciated.

    1086 High Low Upgrade

    New to My 1086. I am installing a High low upgrade kit from Triple Tractor. Theory has it this will stop the gears from locking UP??. Since the top of the transmission has to be opened up and every thing above that has to be removed. Is there anything else I need to upgrade while everything is removed. Don't want to have to take it apart again.

    1086 will not start

    New to Red Power and New to my IH 1086 SN 54,xxx. Of course my first problem was to get the transmission stuck in high and park. knowing nothing paid 500.00 to get it unlocked. that lasted 3 days. so have to learn it for myself. since I didn't know where anything was and could not make out anything with my flashlight or the (service manual NO help) Have Chassis Only Service manual, parts manual and operator's manual. I have taken the seat out, the seat support and the platform sub panel out. now have a clear view. what a dirty mess. Linkage really stiff, clean all the linkage oiled all the connectors, took pictures so I will not have to remember all of this. Now I can work through all the gears with ease. One catch it will Not start. Yes it is in park, yes I have raised the governor control, full of gas, batteries fully charted, turn the key on and NOTHING. have plenty of other questions but will start here and take them one at a time

    86 Series Clutch Linkage Update

    I am in the process of updating our 1086 Tri-stripe clutch linkage. I bought the heavier duty replacement bracket but I am not what other parts I need to allow the bracket to work. As you can see from the pictures the old bushing won't work. It has a washer welded to the end that was on the open side of the old bracket. The parts breakdown shows two bushing, is there two that fit together now? Do I put a bolt all the way through rather than thread into bushing as the old one was? An guidance is appreciated. This piece had bent once before several years ago and I straightened, welded it and ground it back smooth. When it bent again I checked the parts book and saw it had been updated. The new part is much heavier duty. I am probably lucky it didn't fail at an inopportune time.

    Checking IPTO pressure

    I am going to soon be using a new to me 15' batwing mower and I would like to check/adjust the IPTO pressure beforehand. I see in my service manual how to but was wondering if it was necessary to have the IH orifice 384-328 R1 screwed into housing or if I could just use a threaded nipple with a 300# gauge? If I could use just a threaded nipple does anyone know off the top of their head what size nipple is needed? I'm at work now and would like to stop and get what ever I may need on the way home in the morning rather then go home and find out and just to have to turn around and leave home to go get whatever I need. Sorry, not lazy it's just I live in the middle of nowhere and I come within 10 miles of a CNH dealer on my 60 mile drive on the way home, otherwise after I get home nearest CIH dealer is 35 miles. I'm just trying to save some time from running the roads. Gotta love livin in the sticks.

    1086 TA not working in low range

    I initially posted this to another thread on TA issues: *********************************************************** I have a 1086 that I have owned for several years. The TA was not working when I bought it, and I rarely have a need for it, so have never bothered to check it out or repair it. I just leave it in high. Have never had it tested, or tried to figure out what is wrong with it. Are there any tests I can do without splitting the tractor that might indicate what is going on with the TA ? I just assumed that to repair it would involve splitting the tractor. The TA doesn't work on my 560 either, which was my Dad's tractor that he bought new in 1963/64. He had it repaired once, and it failed again, so it was not repaired again. It also just stays in high range. ******************************************** Forum member Matt Kirsch provided this response to my post on that thread: ******************************************** north of 60, This probably belongs in a thread of its own, but if the tractor stops when you shift to low TA, then the sprag is out and the clutch that prevents freewheeling is also out. That requires taking the tractor apart to repair. Unfortunately with a hydraulic TA, if one side is out the other side is not far behind. They don't work like the mechanical TAs in your father's 560, where if the low side goes out you can run the high side indefinitely. ***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** Thanks Matt. I have been running the 1086 in high range only since I bought it several years ago, so either I have been pretty fortunate with the high range side, or the problem with the low range is something other than the sprag being out ??. I was always nervous to try the low range more than just a couple times, thinking I might cause more damage to whatever isn't working properly. Is there something else I can do confirm what the T/A low range issue is ? Grant
