Well then would you and others like to re-visit my Post 48 where I said:
Are you sure?
The TV detective in me looks at the photo of pulling the old engine out and wonders why they would have cleaned the engine bay under the engine after unbolting it from its mounts and before hoisting it? And where are the mounts? Took them off, cleaned it up and dropped the engine back in for a photo?
I must be getting far too cynical.
If they were hard pressed on the hull maintenance how can we be sure the engine was the brand new one shown in packing, or what looks like an old but rebuilt one in the clean engine room looking like its being put in, not taken out.
I'm not being accusatory... I just think the photo in Post 35 doesnt gell and need professional eyes to have a lookie
