No not so quick. Case/Cummins "Consolidated Diesel Co." supplied the engines. The IH designed Magnum as it would be named after the merger was from the engine back, but there was strong influance from Case engineering with such items as the front axle, hood, side console controls, and revamping of the basic IH cab. The Magnums looked like a Case tractor, rather than an IH.
It would have been interesting to see how Case would have fared with the CDC engines and RPS64 tranny. Case would have had to beef up the RPS64 to obtain the reliability that was built into the Magnum trans and rearend, by IH. Case had already aquired Steiger, prior to IH and was experimenting with the CDC engines in the David Browns.

You sure about the cab? There are a few 88 series experimental tractors with Magnum style cabs.

Thanks Loren and Rich, glad to have so many of you all on this forum with an inside look at the process as it was. I have learned so much about the history of Case I never knew before. Glad Case wasn't totally taken over by IH management. Both companies made some good equipment but I am just partial to Case.

CASE management was firmly incharge in almost every facet of the new company. The story of 57? IH vice presidents being brought on is TOTAL LIES. I don't believe IH had 57 vice presdents in their entire history.

The CASE management team made some good and some bad decisions, but they had to live with thier outcome. Looking back, the merger COULD HAVE been much more sucessful, but personal EGO and vendetta played a role in many behind the scenes activities. Only recently have some of them been revealed.
