Re: why won't pto spin on my IH 1486
Our 686 has a canopy and the PTO lever is behind seat, kind of awkward location that's why
asked if it had a cab as a cab tractor the lever would probably be in another place.
The reason I brought up the TA wasn't because of the PTO, it's that many people don't shift
them properly, it should a nice even smooth movement but quick don't play around with
and it will last a long time if it's working properly now, it's an expensive repair.
Also I believe a 1086 will hold back while going downhill with TA engaged a 686
will not, it's like being in neutral going downhill. There's a difference in the TA
designs but not sure where the line is in the 86 series, I think the 986 is the
same as the 686.
