Good question!  :D It's in boxes and baskets  ;D Tomorrow will try to check. One thing for sure, it has no holes for attaching air filter on the intake/exhaust pipes. That is why I think it belonged to a VK, which had the large, cone-shaped filter, which was not attached to the engine

There is no doubt that some parts were very carefully painted and/or detailed for press photos. I have somewhere a photo of a 300 with chromed front suspension, which was used for publicity.

Has your 42 Engine an oilfilter?

Just check it - it is disassembled, but there are holes for the hollow bolts, for the pipes to the filter. So i guess it had a filter.

As for the oil pan, on the 1942 engine the pan has long lines for cooling on the bottom, while on the 1938 engine oil pan there are separate short pieces, like on the photo above in the thread.

I have here, both types of pan. I like the look of the early style pan but it wont work on the next series of engines because the rear main seal is a totally different design. 170S etc would have a rope seal of the type that was used right up to the 1980's (on the 6.9 M100 engines)
