986 slowly but surely

Im trying little by little to get my badly neglected 986 back into shape. I bought this tractor a little over a year ago. Poor thing has spent its entire life outside and is weathered pretty badly. Since I have got the old girl I have put a reman injection pump due to a pump failure right after I got it home. Replace the TA cable as it was stuck in high side from a frozen cable. Only to find out the TA was out on the low side. Well this led to the next step in the project. Back in Dec of last year I put a new TA, clutch kit, MCV rebuild and new 13gpm MCV pump. I took the turbo set up off a donor 1086 and today I turbocharged the ole gal. Im looking to go no more than 120 hp. About all it will see is some bush hogging and light work.

Just drove it for the first time since installing the turbo, a very noticeable difference in seat of the pants in road gear. The mid range power seems to be way better. Im going to wait until I get her on the dyno before I load it heavy or make a pump adjustment. Oh and it sounds waaaaaaaaaaay better LOL !!!

I like what you're doing to the old girl! Would like to get myself a 986 to do this to sometime. Depending on how the pump is set up, guessing its probably running more like a 1486 or 1586? My 1586 ownership started out much the same way except its a factory T/A delete. New turbo, exhaust manifold, tires and duals all around, and a new hitch pump and relief valve. Probably needing injectors and a pump soon too. The old 86's are one of my favorite series.

Thanks ! I guess I have a soft spot for these old tractors. They just need a little love and TLC !
