I don't know.  The UK Club has a member in Mansfield and he should be at the 
Nottingham meeting tomorrow ("Stan the Man", as he's known).  He is of a 
practical persuasion, so I'll ask him.
Stan got caught out last year - he melted a piston in his WR and fitted an MB 
"just to tide him over while waiting for parts".  It turned out the MB engine 
was, unknown to Stan, stolen property.  The police came to check, had a word 
with him, and notified the insurance company.  _They_ can't work out who it 
really belongs to, so Stan is still driving round with it on the understanding 
that, if the legal owner can be determined, he will hand it over or pay them a 
reasonable price for it.
