I'm not sure how long that the Steiger aquisition was tied up in court, but I believe the buyout started before the Case IH merger. Perhaps the conclusion was post merger. My memory is vague on the timing, but I know Case wanted all of it's dealers to document all our issues with the 90 series 4WDs for their court case to demomstrate that they needed to replace the ridgid frame concept with the Steiger design.
Sounds wierd for a company to ask dealers for negatives, but I remember the senario. Perhaps the other old Case dealers might remember this also. We had sold a 4490 to a customer. It had a mind of it's own. We had Case service reps at our dealership multipal times, to solve problems. Finally we delivered the customer a new 4490 that we had provided him, out of our new tractor inventory, while the original one was broken down. Our service staff and company service reps tore out the whole electrical system and replaced it with new, and it was resold under a special program that Case set up. It did work as designed after that.

I guess you have a lot more information than I have so have no reason to doubt what you say. Speaking of having a mind of it's own. We sold one 4494 that did also, at least it seemed that way to me. Could not convince customer's hired operators to be darn sure the steering selector switch was in front steer positon when driving down the road. It liked to take off once in a while and head for the side of the road. I think I traced it down to a loose set screw on steering sensor if I remember correctly. It was an experience for me not being familiar with Case equipment. Had another 4494 that the pto speed was incorrect. I checked it out against another one that was correct but we transfered it out to another dealer who needed one so never pinned it down. Noticed it when on the dyno so started checking pto rpm against engine rpm's. It was a real challenge working on so many different models of tractors when I had enough problems with the red ones the way it was.
