Dispute over 6.4

Ford Motor Co. said Monday morning that a decision by key supplier Navistar International Corp. will not disrupt production of SuperDuty pickups "in the near term." However, the automaker would not say how long it could keep its truck lines running if the recalcitrant vendor holds out.

Navistar announced Monday that it has halted production of the Power Stroke diesel engine it makes for Ford because of an ongoing contract dispute. The Warrenville, Ill.-based engine manufacturer is the exclusive diesel engine supplier for Ford's heavy duty pickup trucks.

In a statement today, Navistar said it "pays its suppliers and employees under contract terms and that it expects Ford to honor the terms of its agreement."

oh well, the IH motors haven't been right since our beloved 444 left us, so I guess we'll just have to wait for Ford to get smart and slap a cummins in there trucks.

04 Silverado 2500HD LB7/Allison, EFI live by duramaxtuner.com with DSP5, 4" MBRP turbo back straight pipe, polished 5" tip, 5% tint, riding on 285 fierce attitudes, many more mods....

As of now, Cummins doesn't have the capacity to build 300,000 more light diesels per year.
It would take 5 years before Cummins could build the capacity, design, fit and thoroughly test a diesel and make it run right in the Superduty. If they rushed it into production, it would be worse than the 6L debacle, then all the Ford guys would be cryin [understandably] again.

Nope, Ford & IH have to settle this dispute or Ford won't be able to offer a diesel truck for a while.

I think the value of used Ford diesels, DC diesels & GM diesels just went up a bit today.
