I also have the most recent information from Cummins.com
When will Ford get the B Series engine for their pickups?
Currently, the Dodge/Cummins and the Ford/Navistar agreements are set
for the next several years. No announcements have been published, by either
company, to change engine suppliers.
Does Ford own Cummins?
No, Ford does not own any part of Cummins Inc.
I remember back a few years ago, just prior to the repurchasing of Ford's stock
in Cummins, that the contract with Dodge and Cummins to put the I6 in the 2500
and 3500's was about to expire. Time went on and finally there was an
announcement the Dodge extended it's contract with Cummins to continue with the
agreements. Ford, in the meantime, tried to acquire a contract with Cummins
for the same engine. Cummins went with Dodge and Ford decided to sell it's
shares of Cummins stock.
Now, that's just what I remember reading about 5 or 6 years ago...
Researching: Hedlund, Anderson, Nyrιn, Jansson,

It was back in 98 when Cummins bought back there stock from Ford. You was
able to get the B series in the F-450 F-550 F-650 and F-750 until around
2001. It was also used it Freightliner school bus and some small single axle
dump trucks. On the 12 valve B series the block was about the only thing
that was the same. On the 24 valve the heads and pistons were the only
differents on the lower side. But when we ran out of Dodge parts we would
use Ford parts. So some of the Dodge trucks are out there with ported heads.
