Ford Motor Company
and International Truck and
Corp. will meet in court over a pricing dispute over International's 6.4-liter
engines that go into Ford's
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
to pay full price for them. AutoNews reported last week that Ford originally withheld payments to International because of
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.
