Didn"t see a reply to your question, but there is something wrong when a 1086 with the "TA" applied doesn"t hold, on what you described as a "light grade".
About the last "big series" of IH that the torque-amplifier allowed "free-wheeling" rather than the slower desired slower ground-speed was the "560".
After that, IH made most of them "hold back" to a certain point. If you went down a steep-enough hill, with enough of a load behind you, you had to "touch" the brakes a little to "help" the TA, even on an 806 model, and later.
I should add that the IH 656-Utility also went into a "free-wheeling" state, if the TA was applied on a down-grade. I guess it was a problem that IH addressed more "across the board" later on.
