YORK - BORG/WARNER factory photo

a photo I ran across today

a factory worker giving a tour

in the YORK - Borg/Warner factory. in 1978

I think the town is near Decatur, Illinois ???

hope some of you on here will maybe recognize more details in the photo

( are those parts of gear boxes/compressors on the work table ? )

as a kid in the 70s my parents had a central air unit installed,...

it ran for over 20 years. had a tin sign on the side that read,... "YORK-by Borg/Warner"

wonder if the YORK units of today are as tuff ? we know the Borg Warner transfer cases are still going.....

1978: Assembly worker Jo Ann Cox, right, shows one of the lines at York Automotive Division of Borg-Warner Corp. to Mrs. Willard Cox and Donnie Stugis. (H&R file photo)

The York's today look the same. You can tell the crank and pistons are installed and Jo Ann is putting the valve plate gasket in place over the dowel pins. Great picture.
1974 Cherokee S. It's driving but needs more work. As usual!
