Water cooled for the 'burbs and air cooled for the sand regions ... win/win.

Ooh... Not sure what crack they were smoking when they first thought about this let alone acting upon said thought.

I don't know what's worse - the mating of the square round body shapes or the thought of two EA82s trying not to leak oil together...

Mrs El_Freddo laughed a little bit, then said "suby bug"... Then laughed a little more and confessed that she liked it. I wasn't sure if we were looking at the same thing...

Blah!

Cheers

Bennie
