Speedbird092, I don't know exact answers, but I do know that the Boeing plant manufactures wings for the 717, which as I'm sure you know, doesn't sell well. They used to make wings for the McDonnel Douglas aircraft, including the MD80's, MD-11's and DC-10's that I know of. I'm sure the wings for other aircraft lines were built there too.
I don't know about the Pratt & Whitney site, other than that they do have test facilities there. So I am not sure if they not only manufacture engines there (my best guess would be the PT6 engine) but I would also imagine a lot of research and development occurs there too.
Hopefully somebody else with greater knowlege will fill in the blanks.
