Re: 58 Merc Park Lane Super Marauder -- Part VII Final Assem

I'm glad the postings were helpful. Frankly MEL engines are so overlooked and have such little information posted on the web that the MEL Forum in general is an excellent resource for anyone interested in or working with this engine family.
