does JD actually built any of their own engines???? I have been told that NATIONAL ENGINE BUILDERS builts their engines and that a lot of the detroit parts interchange with JD. I wonder if any of this is true ? but who ever buits them they are good.

I hope you are not adding oil everyday to it? Every engine will seek its own oil level. You should only add oil when it reaches the add line on the dip stick.
I can tell you about engine problems on our three 8010s,not our 9870STS though.Had to replace injectors on one of our 07 8010s after it was sitting in the field for a week during harvest,when the service tech guys tried to locate the problem.Then there is another engine problem,and thats called fuel consumption.Our 8010 burnt 2.8gals/acre average,our Deere 1.3gals/acre.The best Case did 3900 acres,the Deere did 4160 acres...Do the math by yourself how much fuel we could have saved and how many acres more we could have done using four 9870s...
OK, I'll just make a few swift calibrations here.
So you would have allowed 44 Liters of oil consumption.
Actual use was 4 liters.
In other words I never added oil at all.
In 260 hours.
That guideline seems far too high a consumption to me.
Maybe FT was asking because he is looking at buying a 8345RT and wanted to make sure the 9L in it is going to be solid. I had heard about the sleeve issue also, not to mention the burning to the ground issue.
I don't think he was picking a fight. Its very common to hear about engine issues
Some are just failures but this crackshaft deal is still one??? I've read a few post this fall about a few and wow I would think this would be under controll
