Default Re: What is happening

Zelandeth, did you know that the inline 6 of the Datsun 240Z (USA, Fair Lady Z in Japan) was actually a Mercedes design? Nissan's improvement was an oil pressure fed OHC chain tensioner; Mercedes used a manually-adjusted one. Mercedes bought the Nissan tensioner for their motors. I was told this by a Datsun dealer in 1969, and a Mercedes dealer reluctantly verified it.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
