7288 trans

Recommended Posts

That is the way I have always done it until this time. I always brought the speed transmission out when I rolled it apart and then lifted it off the transfer case. Seems to balance OK on the front stand. When I lifted the transfer case off the front half on mine I was glad that I had put a couple of safety stands under the nose. I was going to roll the front a little further forward to make a little more room, however it is now sitting on those stands. IH had the balance points pretty closely figured out it would appear.

Yep.  I dont understand why people run these darn things.  They just eat these trans.

You only need to go back into the history of this site to know why. There are many who absolutely refuse to believe that a test harness can cause problems. After all, they've had one on their tractor for years and never had a problem, and they are for sure not going to pay what CaseIH wants for a replacement Sentry (mind you this was before the aftermarket Sentry was introduced).

Especially on a 7288, if you can afford the tractor, a Sentry isn't out of question.  Are tranny parts common with the 50 series on those?

The guts are the same.  On these tractors the bell housing is full of hyd oil to.  The front end is directly driven from range trans. 

Yes the new sentry we offer is a game changer at half price of dealer.  Also has led diagnostic on them

I believe that is currently underway on a project...

Details?

I thought Danny (Dirtboyz) had mentioned something about this, but I don't remember the details.  Maybe he said it would be too complicated/expensive.  Might have been in response to the articulated Magnum he worked on.  Again he has had some many interesting threads that I probably have some mixed up.

Now, if we could just get a few of those transfer case/pivot housings duplicated....🤨🤣🤣

...and find those heavier front axles.

Years ago, I'd heard & read the story that there were a couple racks worth of the RABA-built front axles for the Super 70's, and that quite a few of them had made their way to Kansas.  Not sure if they're still there or not.

IDK where they are now - but those axles (pretty sure it was them) & the rear fuel tanks for the "next gen" tractors once were stacked up at Milan Surplus in Milan IL.   Now long gone.

I have one of the tanks out behind the barn - bought one and used it for a flush tank on a sprayer for a few years.

Wasn't there a pic on the FB group for TSX tractors of a full rack of those axles?
