Not sure thats a good example. The 6.0 was a diesel, built by Navistar, and sold to Ford.


The 6.0 block was built by Navistar...the rest was Ford.


I'd sure like to see your source for that, everything I can find says it is a 100% Navistar built engine - just like the original 7.3 and the 6.4 afterwards.

The 6.7 Power Stroke is 100% Ford.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

I basically worked for Ford as a subcontractor then, doing the electronics warranty repairs at the dealer level. Ford did the electronics and the heads on the 6.0. Don't know anything about the 6.4, that engine came out after I left that career. But I'll see what I can find.

Within Forest River, I believe only the Georgetown and FR3 are built on the Ford F53 chassis and share a common in-dash A/C system. Anyone else have condensation water dripping inside, in the area of the co-pilot footwell every time you run the air conditioner. Anyone got a fix? Start reading couple useful articles about it here coolcarsforever.com, what do you think?

Heaven forbid for designing anything new, for replacing the tried and proven.
I mean, what was wrong with the Model T and didn't it get one from point A to point B?

I would suggest starting a new thread.
