Been helping a friend the last few days try to finish up planting beans. Been running his 7250 on a case IH 330 turbo till and today it went to shut down mode on trans temp. It was after I had ran it in the field all morning then roaded it about 15 miles and then went back to work. Shut it down and let it cool for awhile and then it ran another half hour or so and done it again. In the process I discovered the fan clutch may not be doing its thing. Seemed like the fan was not turning as fast as it should for as hot as it was. Engine temp was crowding the red too. Had to gear back to keep it out of the red most of the day. So we unhooked it and went and got his 7150 and finished the field and on the way home it tried to shut down on trans temp too. I was crossing the highway a half mile from his house when it done it so I hit the over ride and kept going. Got to his house and shut it off and restarted it and light was off. Seems like it has something to do with roading them. They said the 7250 done it before when it was hot like today. They also put a new fan clutch in the 7150 previously. Seems like they both run a lot hotter than my 7130 does on the engine temp. My 7130 has a strap bolted to the clutch to lock it solid. Is this something case IH offered or is that something homemade by someone previously? Also, where is the trans temp sensor on the magnums? Also what temp does it set the light off at? It seems like the implement hoses are way cooler than the ones would be coming out of my 1466 after working all day. You would think a closed center system would run cooler. They took the 7250 to the dealer to get it fixed along with a couple other problems.
Any ideas anyone?
