And the crank is forged steel, and the flywheel flange is thicker, and they
have the rods with the wider beams, and they have cast iron timing covers,
and the have heads with a huge central exhaust crossover with intake and
exhaust manifolds to match, and they have a dizz with a wider shaft diameter
requiring a bushing to run a regular FE dizz.

Statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting blame upon the nation that is
attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing
falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any
refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that
the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys
after this process of grotesque self-deception.- Mark Twain
"Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to do the bidding
of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are
being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." -
"We don't go out and hire journalists and propagandize and lie and put
people on payroll so that they'll say what you want."--Donald Rumsfeld,
