Re: 2388 high speed gears?

Very simple if you have the electric 2 speed just reach down by the shifter & push the micro switch off to the side & presto you get high range in 3rd gear [normaly blocked out from the factory] trick I learned when I was on wheat harvest!!!!!!

Re: 2388 high speed gears?

just put the 2 wire on the c terminal of the micro switch. High all the time lol.

When I rebuilt out 2388 gearbox in 2006 we went through all the case stuff and mad sure that we had the highest 2nd gear ratio we could. There are 2 diffrent 2nd ratios in the case parts system.

We now have a 2588 and no point trying to gear her up flat out keeping speed as it is, dont know why, not lossing HP, and it dont matter how full the tank is, will drop 3 or 4 km on a hill.

Thats is it our 2588 will drop from around 15km/h sometimes down to 10km/h cumming up a sandhill. Only loss 10 or 20 rpm, not working hard in a 1 or 2 bag crop.

Blanchfarm, things would be looking ok there at the moment?

It was out of warranty en of last year, its well know to case and the dealer about the ground speed. Dads mate got one the same time from same dealer, same spec and its the same for ground speed.

tracks on a case 2388?

I'm thinking about putting some tracks on my 2003 case 2388 but it will drop the speed in all gears down by a third. Is there any way (easy way) to change the gear ratios in the gearbox?
