RE: Mercedes and Audi

Mercedes owned Audi in the '60s, before VW bought them around 68.
The Audi engine in the late '60s and early '70s (pushrod engines)
are in fact Mercedes design, the "high pressure engine" or something
like that. The design was brought over by the chief engineer named
by Mercedes. A version of that engine was sold to AMC as well in
the '70s. Later it got an OHC head and showed up in the Porsche 924.

RE: Hard shifting 4K

I think you need a clutch alignment. If the clutch can not disengage
sorry, make it a clutch adjustment, I am in a 1 line mode -
completely, it will wear out your sychro rings. Now the synchros
do the work, that it is why it is harder to shift.

Good luck, Peter
