On Wednesday, Oct. 10,
the 2,000,000th diesel engine produced by Consolidated Diesel Co. (CDC) rolled
off the line. The engine was the end result of a joint venture between Cummins
and Case Corp.
The Cummins 9-liter ISL
330-horsepower engine will be delivered to Peterbilt Motors Co. of Denton,
TX, a division of PACCAR Inc. It will power a Model 357 Peterbilt chassis
dump truck for construction use with D III Transport Corp. of San Diego, CA.
Located in Whitakers, NC, CDC was formed in October 1980 and produced its
first engine on July 1, 1983.
