I was no longer employed at a dealership when the merger occurred so I do not know what rumors or facts were circulating at that time. There was not CASE failure, only a surprised industry to hear CASE co. BOUGHT IH. The rest of the industry applauded the move because of the excess manufacturing facilities in the US a that time. If memory serves me correctly IH Ag. was bought for a fire sale price of 400 million. Getting back to the orringal question I'm sure management wanted the most bang for the buck and that happened to be the IH design tranny, I think history has shown they made the right choose on the tranny and engine.
