Suspends diesel engine production; says Ford not honoring terms

Stiffing your suppliers is a dumb thing to do
Navistar suspends diesel engine production; says Ford not honoring terms http://www.detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070226/UPDATE/702260402
Navistar International Corp. said today that it has halted production of the Power Stroke diesel engine it makes for Ford Motor Co. because of a contract dispute.
Warrenville, Ill.-based Navistar is the exclusive diesel engine supplier for Ford's heavy duty pickup trucks. In a statement today it said it "pays its suppliers and employees under contract terms and that it expects Ford to honor the terms of its agreement."
Ford officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
In January, Ford sued Navistar, saying the engine maker was not complying with warranty cost-sharing agreements and that it had unjustifiably raised prices on its products. The suit said at the time that Navistar had threatened to cut off shipment if Ford did not pay the new prices for its engines.
Navistar said it will stop making the 6.4-litre Power Stroke at its Indianapolis and Huntsville, Ala. factories but that the Huntsville plant will continue production for other customers.
