Doesn't make it english. More of the world is metric than SAE.

Last spring I was in southern Texas having work done on my motorhome at a Cat dealer and they had several of the new "Cat" trucks in the yard. Being curious I found out that they are powered by Navistar and not Cat engines. From the general discussion, it was understood that the Navistar engine was not a hit. FYI

The new Cat trucks are produced on a International chassis with a Cat engine and a Cat tranny that was modified from a rock crawler.

I worked for Cummins for 5 years selling big generators. They are not an English company. The 19, 38 and 50 liter engines were built in Daventry, England. The 28 liter engines were built in India. All the rest were bult in America. They also bought Onan. They have always dominated the on-highway market.

I also worked for Detroit Diesel for 10 years. General Motors sold them out to Penske Corp, who sold them out to Daimler Benz. Their 2 cycle product is gone, their series 60 highway engine was great, but now their product is mixed with MTU. They have always dominated the marine market.

I never worked for Caterpillar. Wish I had. I consider them a grade A product. They have always dominated the off-highway market. They make more money selling big earth-moving equipment all over the world than anyone else. Why should they bother losing money trying to comply with ever-increasing US environmental regulations for on-highway?

My Peter-built had a Cat 400 back in the 80'es sure loved it.
Say what you will but I sure would love to have a visor just like the one in the Picture with the lights too. Mount it on my 82 PA.

Do they sell them for MH?

You are absolutely correct. I have all the tools I need to work on all of my equipment and I have a lot of metric tools. given the choice of using a 13mm or 1/2" I always grab the latter because I HATE METRIC!
I'm just nuts I suppose.

Not true. Cummins is a publicly traded company and not owned by Ford nor a subsidiary of Ford. Ford is a stock holder and did, may still have, a minority position on their board.
