This Wednesday, Ford
Motor Company and International Truck and Engine
Corp. will meet in court over a pricing dispute over International's 6.4-liter diesel
engines that go into Ford's F-250
and F-450 Super Duty pickups built in its Louisville, Ky., truck plant. Last week, a circuit court judge in Michigan ordered International to restart production and Ford to pay full price for them. AutoNews reported last week that Ford originally withheld payments to International because of warranty
claims on the 6.0-liter diesel engines and International stopped sending the engines to Ford on February 23. The Ford plant was quiet on Friday, and starting today two of three shifts will be trimmed for the time being.
