IS THERE ANY CASEIH BUILT TRACTORS THAT USE THE SAME PARTS AS THE IH 88'SERIES? WHAT PARTS ARE THEY? ALSO DID CASEIH USE THE IH ENGINE IN ANY OF THE CASEIH TRACTORS? MAINLY THE LARGER TRACTORS.

There's not enough space to list all of the parts from IH that were used in the Magnum. Basically 95% from the flywheel to the hitch. The larger tractors used a Cummins/CDC engine. The german IH engine was used up untill the C series small tractors came out. Eason

IH sold the ag division to Tenneco in 1985, and kept the truck division.

The American-built 400-series engines went with the truck division.

Case either didn't want to pay for the IH engine, or Navistar wouldn't sell them engines. I believe if IH had continued on, the Magnums would've had intercooled DT466 engines.

the magnums were going to be the 'new farmall' according to ken updike's book.

dirtboyz '5388' is pretty much what it would have looked like if only...

CaseIH bought engines for the combines until 1989 from Navistar.

case IH used the same 2wd HD square axle from the 5488 on the maxxum MX110 up to the Magnum MX220.

and Eason is correct. up to the MX magnums, from the flywheel back is all IH. and derived from the 5X88 series. After the MX magnum series, they use the same clutch pack designs. very little IH left in the NEW magnums anymore.

planters and combines are still IH. ...for the most part.

It was either that or don't sell combines at all for a couple of years. Someone probably died a little inside every time that bill came in from Navistar.

Remember that they sold red-painted Case tractors until about 1989 too.

That four-year period was spent redesigning and retooling, figuring out how to put Cummins engines in the Magnums and combines.

Red painted Case tractors were pretty much sold out by late 1987 or early 1988,@ least up here in Alberta.The CaseIH dealer I worked@sold lots of red case tractors in the summer of '87 in the Fire Sale.The first Magnums they moved were early '88. The only Case Tractors sold after that were the the 4WD s after that until Red Steigers came out.....

Except the 1896 & 2096 as I recall. I remember those being listed alongside the Magnums in the '88 & '89 Case IH catalogs that I had as a kid. I guess they needed something to fill the 85-100 hp spot until the Maxxums came out.
