I hope Ford turns to CAT if things fall with Navistar.

You don't think it would be good? Wow, it really must just be this area where CAT has a good rep.

I think CAT M/D diesels have a much worse reputation than IH M/D diesels
3116, 3126, 3208??? No thanks.

CAT has a better rep in larger displacement class 8 size truck diesels

I know the 3208 has a reputation like Anna Nicole Smith, everybody just expects it to die. But the 3126 I would think would make a alright engine. From what I know at least. I don't know for sure, just from what little i know.

I don't know about CAT. My brother had 2 Autocar Dumps with the 3406 350 in them. The 93 needed the bottom end rebuilt at less than 300k, cost him about $3500. He sold it a few months after that. The the 95 that he still has, needed the bottom done so he did it and a few months later antifreeze invaded the oil department took it back for a complete rebuild both in the same year so it cost him close to 10k in repairs. Even after the rebuild my 89 Mack still starts better and it still has not been rebuilt. Even though Mack has Renault build them the engines now, I wonder if they could build a small block E-7 to meet emissions. Then you could have a bulldog emblem on the hood.

I'm not saying all CAT's are bad, it's just what I see that I can talk about. Then there is the talk about how much more it will cost to put a cat in the fords.

If International builds the engines I don't know why they don't cover the repair bills to it's fullest. Now if there is evidence that Ford did changes to the engine that may have caused it to fail well that's a different story.

I'm happy with my 6.0 and I'm sure there will be plenty of happy people with the 6.4 which in my opinion will still have to face some problems along the way.

this is what FORD sent out to the Dealers:

PowerStroke 6.4-liter Diesel

Navistar International Corporation announced today that it has suspended production of the Power StrokeŽ 6.4-liter diesel engine. Ford has worked closely with Navistar and will take the necessary steps to resolve this issue. The company is continuing to build F-Series Super Duty trucks with the 6.4-liter diesel engine. We will provide an update on status when we have new information.

I'm not saying any is really wrong on their opinion of CAT. They just have a really good rep around here.
