Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I'm located 25 mi. south of
Chicago. This computer was bought around 1985 for around 38 thousand dollars
including software and support. It was used to evaluate Cummins diesel
engines by running through various sequences measuring the time and
pressures it monitored and compared these values with the database loaded.
the unit ran from two floppy's, I have to add the software was very buggy
and the support program from Cummins engine company did not help much. I
have included pictures you can access via
http://reo-solutions.com/gallery/ti-990a13 . If interested please contact
