  1. Building a Sentry Module

    So I received a Service training manual for the 50 and 70 series tractors today. There is a section on the sentry system and it gives some time frames for different functions when testing it. Don’t know if it will help with this topic but I can get some scans of the manual tomorrow and post them here if you like.

    I had my 5088 apart 2 years ago and found it has hand the “True Blue” IH updates. I also just received in the mail an IH Service training manual from late 84-85 on the 50 and 70 series. Started reading it as soon as I got it open. Very interesting and a lot of info on testing hydraulic systems and sentry system.
  3. 7288 & 7488 tractors

    So what happened to the topic of this thread???
  4. Pictures of the TRX and other IHC prototypes

    Wasn’t there another set up where there was some controls for dash functions on the steering wheel ? I recall seeing something like that somewhere or I may have dreamt about that.
  5. Purchasing 5488 s/n-4421

    So I’m buying 5488 s/n-4421 and was looking up serial numbers and found this thread. What I’m trying to do is find the Daily serial number list on Wisconsin Historical society site and am having a hard time navigating it. Thanks for the input
  6. Purchasing 5488 s/n-4421

    This is from Bermuda Ken Posted August 7, 2006 Here's some numbers to think over.........George2's 5488 is shown on the daily list on 4-23-85 along with 5488 # 4446. The FINAL FARMALL built tractor (#4452) is on the daily list on 5-6-85. IH list several other 5488's after this date. They are: 5-7-85.....# 4418, #4421, #4426 5-8-85.....#4451 5-9-85.....#4412 5-10-85....#4420, #4434 Just what part of the production line the daily serial number report was taken is unknown to me. If 5488 # 4452 was the LAST tractor set on the line, and the serial numbers were recorded when the tractor was "line-set" why are there 20 other tractors listed with dates after 5-6-85?????(I did not list them all here) The final FARMALL 5488 assembly photos from Dale Jensen indicate that an assembled chassis (engine, trans/final drive and front frame....missing the rad and F-A-F box, cab, platform, fuel tanks, and all hoodwork) was all that existed on 5-6-85. The IH archives has a copy of this daily serial number report (thanks to me) so this data is not "fabricated" or "restricted" to the use of only a few. ANYONE can get this report from the IH archives.

  9. Building a Sentry Module

    I hope this picture works for you. The second picture is of the one in my 5088 Case IH part doesn’t show a number on the larger transistor
  10. Building a Sentry Module

    I have 4 sitting in my shop. I will try and get you some pictures this week.
  11. Electrical issue with 1666

    Check the positive and negative cables at the batteries. I have had them get corroded inside the flag and loose contact. There is also a single wire that feeds the digital display at the batteries that goes bad. Load test batteries, have seen a bad cell do funny things in the cab also.
  12. Sept/Oct 1975

    So this is where it all started for me. This picture was taken in September/October of 1975 it went missing for quite some time. My dad found it a couple months ago and had it blown up for me. I received it for my birthday and I think this is the best gift ever. Thanks Dad for everything.
  13. Sept/Oct 1975

    The 1256's are long gone and I don't have any clue to where they may be. I wish I did. Thank you for all the comments. When Dad gave me this original picture and one he had enlarged and framed it brought a tear to my eye. I'm not sure what the deal was with the decal on the hood. I asked dad but he wasn't sure. By the way I was 4 when this was taken.
  14. Unknown IH shop tool fluid dispenser

    I have one that is yellow with the IH decal on it. I will try and get a picture tomorrow evening. Cool find.
  15. 7120 combine a/c evaporater

    Check the right side where the evaporator slides into the cab. Make sure it is sealed up good.
  16. New to me 4186

    Brought this old girl home tonight. Anyone with any tips or advice? I know the steering is something to be desired and don't want to hear to get rid of it. Thanks for the advice in advance.
  17. New to me 4186

  19. New to me 4186

    I have the original owners manual and have been looking through it.
  20. New to me 4186

    Yes, we have been using our 5088 for all tillage and planting. This will allow us to work ground right ahead of the planter now. Instead of possibly drying the ground out before the planter can get to it. Very small farm here.
  21. New to me 4186

    It's pretty flat where we live also. That was in the list of things to do.
  22. Power steering kits

    It may be the cap wire you are describing. Just a piece of square wire to hold the cap in.
  23. 7120 tractor hot hyd oil

    Are your rear axle housings hot to the touch? If so your brakes may be dragging. To correct this blow the dirt off the top of the brake valve on front of the cab. Then adjust to where the pins are free to spin. If you had a temp gun that would help. Hydraulic Oil will run about 100* over ambient temperature from what I have been around. Good luck
  24. Dry camping at Half Century of Progress show

    I could make room at my shop for a few campers if needed. It is about 3.5 miles from the show and quiet. PM me if interested
  25. sentry module

    It would be nice to know this. I have 3 sitting in my shop. I wonder if someone has the drawings for them. I know Mike links is rebuilding them somehow.
