Just realised this is your first / second post so a big welcome aboard to CF
and hoping to hear much more from you in the future!
Or could be an excuse for hammering a new engine on a delivery
Anyway it might be true for some of their engines or it might be "new" thing but I wouldn't put too much faith in it's veracity in a universal sense
assemble engines in various parts of the world and ship party assembled to various countries for final assembly and sale
. For instance, some Yanmar engines sold in Australia
are partly assembled in Europe
I believe) and final assembly in carried out here, some come direct from Japan
(AFAIK) completely assembled. I dunno about the USA although some Yanmars sold in USA are from Europe
- these carry an "e" prefix in the serial
So as you see, it probably isn't a universal truth and perhaps not true at all
