  1. I didn’t realize they used this in dozers til now
  2. Parked mine in the yard ...
  3. The other part of the issue listed in the original lawsuit was that the gas tank was between the driver and the engine....Deere put their fuel tank out front so it didn’t get as warm.....
  4. Good content, even the Yogi comment. It’s all leading to government taking over everything....I once started a thread on here about original stock companies and who knew any.....like, Navistar was, Ford, John Deere, Cat...a few mentioned snap on tools.....I can’t remember the others...
  5. The CEO was Dan Ustain, a Chicago suburb child, who started at IH in the 70’s......he was there in the 80’s when things went bad....

  7. 560 days...good one....this has really torn me up though......Dan Ustain started with IHC in the 70’s.....this old mindset of top down was still with the company.....how can this happen twice to the same company......I’ve given up on our heritage.....Cyrus SR and Cyrus JR would be so sad......one of our oldest truck manufactures gone....just like that....leaves only Paccar as US owned and John Deere on the AG side.....such a sad ending ......but how can this happen...????????????
  8. Dan Ustian started with IH in the 70’s. He worked his way up to CEO and he is the one who told engineers to stay with EGR instead of going to SCR on the Maxforce engines....this was an old IH guy who did it again... https://www.forbes.com/sites/joannmuller/2012/08/02/death-by-hubris-the-catastrophic-decision-that-could-bankrupt-a-great-american-manufacturer/?sh=505e42526fbb
  9. This is really just a rebadged 886

  11. Yes your right I believe in April of 1989 they went to Cummins......but a little known fact is that when the 1600 series came out the 40 & 60 had 466 engines....40 had no turbo 60 had DT466 and the 80 had DTI 466.....
