IH 5188 Rendering
My second attempt on an IH 5188 rendering the "New Farmall"
series (the next 50 series). Still no mock-ups or prototype
pics availible for the test model 5188(code name TX 189).
The cab and transmission on the Magnum as well as the MFD
axel were all taken from the "New Farmall" test models and
mated to a Case IH frame I superimposed a 50 series hood on
a Magnum.
The resulting picture is my second rendering of what the New
Farmall may have looked like.

Re: IH 5188 Rendering
Zijn er foto's of gegevens van de Vari Torque
transmissie?Deze transmissie werdt door IH in het begin van
de jaren 80 ontwikeld en was voorzien voor de 50 serie.deze
zou in 1984 in produktie gaan,maar door de fusie met Case is
dit niet doorgegaan.Deze transmissie heeft een variabele
Hydro-mechanische (geen hydro)overbrengig.Er zouden wel
prototyp ens en pre'producties van zijn.Deze zou ook in de
5188 gebouw worden.

Hey Hans,

Having a little trouble interpreting the Belgian, could you
do it in English possibly?

Re: IH 5188 Rendering
Are theire pictures and information from the Vari Torque
transmission?These transmission is in the beginning of the
years 80 developement by IH and was for the 50-serie for the
5188.There are prototype of it.These transmissie has a
variable hydro-mechanische (non "hydro")transmission.
Your 5188 "New Farmall"look well.
Re: IH 5188 Rendering

I have an IH book which touches on the tranny, I'll have a
look and get back to you.

Re: IH 5188 Rendering
According to Ken Updike (International Harvester Tracotrs
1955-1985) "the IH Vari-Torque transmission rerplaced the
6-speed gearbox used in the 50 series with a variable speed,
hydro-mechanical unit. This was the product of combining a
hydrostatic drive transmission with a gear-drive unit. The
engines power was split upon entering the speed
transmission. Part of the power load was transmitted through
a gear-drive pack, and part was put through a hydrostatic
drive unit. The power was joined together again before
exiting the housing and contiuing on to the three
speed-range transmission. The unique feature of teh
Vari-torque transmission was that it offered the efficiency
of a gear drive with the variable speed features of a hydro.
The operator could chose any one of three ranges
(high-medium-low) and have infinately variable speeds in
each range."
Re: IH 5188 Rendering
The where abouts of the TX-189 test prototype is apparently
somewhat of a mystery. According to Ken Updike, the tester
was loaded on a transport covered with a tarp and shipped to
Racine, Wisconsin from the Hindsdale test farm in Illinois
on the day the sale of IH Ag was announced to Tenneco
(Case's parent company at the time). However, three years
later (1987) the TX 189 tractor (New Farmall) was officially
announced, in slightly modified form, as the New Magnum 7100
series. I previously posted a renderring of a 5188, and
someone apparently working on the design at the time was
potentially going to post some mock-ups or prototype pics of
teh 5188. However, unfortunatley I haven't seen anything
yet. But who knows, maybe I'll see something more about it
on here sometime :-P
Re: IH 5188 Rendering
Look at this:

It must be a kind of prototype, a mix between 5x88 and Magnum. Maybe this is the TX-189?
