Just for grins, let's see in how many places the narration doesn't match the assembly shown.

1. The first glimpse of the cylinder head is without valves or springs. A moment later a fully assembled head is placed on the engine.
2. The sealing goop is applied to the dynamo housing "could never be performed as quickly, cleanly and precisely by human hand" but when the applicator passes over the half-moon seal, a glop of sealant is picked up by the applicator wand and deposited in the case at completion of the pass.
3. Engine on test stand and being run up. Oil cooler hanging by hoses and seems to sag.
4. Fully assembled engine on cradle, going to next workstation "the four cylinder online engine..."
