Good story looking forward to Part II.

The Left and Right Diesel Engines were different.  The Exhausts exited towards the Middle of the Tank.  So the Left Hand Engine would Exhaust to the Right, and the Right Hand Engine would Exhaust to the Left.  I'm not 100% sure how many other Components would Mirror Imaged between the two Engines.  But in any case that's why there were two Part number prefixes.

 

Oh yeah and the Black and White footage shows why the Turret Counterweights are shaped the way they were.  I always wondered.
