Ford 98, 172, and 192 Distributors; you spoke and we listened
Ford 98 Distributors
Ford no longer offers a distributor for the Ford 98 industrial engine, also called the Ford KSG416 engine. This four cylinder Ford industrial engine is widely used in Bobcat Model 632, 642, 722 732 and 742 skid steer loaders, Gehl Model 4500, 4510 and 4515 skid steers, Tenant floor sweepers and other applications. To support our customers, Foley now offers new solid state distributors for these Ford 98 engines. No muss, no fuss, 100% solid state.
 
Ford 172 and Ford 192 Distributors
As we noted in Tech Tip #117, Ford no longer offers a distributor for the Ford 172 and Ford 192 engines. These Ford Industrials are  also known as the Ford  RSG-428 and RSG-431 engines with  block casting numbers including CONN 6015J and B9NN 6015B. This four cylinder Ford industrial engine is widely used in Hyster forklifts and other industrial applications. In Tech Tip #117 we introduced a new point-style distributor for the Ford 172 and Ford 192 engine that we were having made by a European firm. Knowing what a pain it is to service point-style distributors, we will soon be offering a US made, solid state distributor for the Ford 172 and Ford 192 engines.  Again, no muss, no fuss, 100% solid state.

Foley Diesel Exhaust Scrubbers go to Vassar College

April 16, 2013

Foley Diesel Exhaust Scrubbers go to Vassar College
Vassar College recently compared diesel exhaust scrubbers. They wanted to be sure their contractors working on a new Vassar building project used the best ones. Their Department of Environmental Health and Safety compared various diesel scrubber products and chose ours. Our diesel scrubbers have worked better on initial startup and during low temperatures because they contain more platinum. The exhaust emissions also have a “torturous call” and travel a longer path within our scrubber body which improves efficiency. Finally, we use an industry standard coating, not one of our own.
