The $600 fun money will be administered through each states unemployment processing. In some not all states Ford has an agreement with unemployment services to automatically trigger SUB. I`m sure everything will workout just fine. In the mean time cash those checks MTP`er & Fuzzy
Even if medium duty does have a short life, this is good news:
Pretty good considering there is not much new other than the 7.3L. I might be in the market for a medium duty (rollback car carrier) and I hope the F-650 is still around if/when I am in the market. Also hope by that time the 650 has the current aluminum Super Duty cab on it.
We pay enough in taxes so why don't we get an opinion?Those buyout checks are gonna have to compete with Ford`s other expenses.It aint good timing.Ford Motor is not Apple or Amazon corp.When I read the buyout details there was no guarantee as to when the bonus check would arrive.My guess is Ford will have until the end of the year to pay.You will just have to wait and see but you will get it eventually.Labor Relations at the plant or local union reps are not the ones making the decision as to when the checks get cut.I would guess the Chief Financial Officer of Ford Motor would be the guy to ask.
I am gonna guess that the $600 would be added to the States payout and that may equal at least 74% of your take home of 40 hours before taxes.If that is the case then SUB is off the hook because SUB is the guarantee of 74% of 40 hours before taxes be paid to the employee.I see how if/when we get $600 from the Feds and if that $600 + the States portion of unemployment, = at least 74% of 40 hours then SUB is owed to us or is payed at a lesser amount.If an employee was already paid based on NOT getting the $600 then I assume that would be an over payment once the $600 kicks in.
It may have been a skunkworks project with only a few people working on it. It's also been 54 years. I'd guess that anybody who did work on it have long since retired. Some (all?) may have passed away too.
Yes, the Lariat will get the upgraded cluster and larger screen.
XL, XLT will not get the digital cluster. The big center screen will probably be an option? Don't know how they will make a smaller screen look good in that large space but we'll probably see that in the next few months.
I will check what an RTD meter is.
On my mountaineer the low side is really cool to the touch.
The Navigator's low side is cool to the touch, as the mountanieer is very cold to the touch.
I attached photo of the mountaineer low side readings.
