Okay, so I see the rumor mill has powered back up so I thought that I would add my own little batch to the grind. A friend of mine works for a company that repairs locomotives. About a couple of months ago he comes up to me and says that a parts rep from Navistar told him that Ford paid International 70 million dollars to be released from their contract. Ford supposedly feels that they can produce diesel engines cheaper in house than buying them. I personally feel that IF any of this isn't a load (I have done NO research into this) that Ford just wants to be in a position to snap up that cummins when Dodge starts using M/B engines. Ford would then rule the planet.
