"You do realize there's more to a vehicle than just the motor, right? Now, how about asking the original question (3rd request)?"

You do realize we are talking about MB mechanics working on a MB motor, right?

Let's try this, aircraft engines.

CFM 56 is available on the Airbus 320 and 340, Boeing 737 and the KC-135, your trying to say a Airbus mechanic cannot work on a Boeing aircraft engine because it is a Boeing? Even though they share the same CFM 56 turbofan?

I don't care how much MB training MB techs get, I'm asking you now for the fourth time how much Jeep training do MB techs get? I can see all sorts of liability concerns with an MB tech working on a vehicle he's not certified on, engine be damned.

Can he? Yes. Will he? Not necessarily. If you really want to be technical the CFM56 as installed in the four airframes you list is not exactly the same, in fact, on the KC-135 it's not even called the CFM56.

U.S. military designation of the CFM 56 turbofan engine is F-108(standard procedure on jet engines that are used both in civil and military applications).

There are many variations and subtypes of turbofan engines like the CFM 56,the largest version in size of which is used on the Airbus A340(CFM 56-5C on the A340-200/300 models).

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned this but the CFM 56 owes its very existence to the fact that Cammacorp retrofitted 110 McDonnell Douglas DC-8 Super Sixty series aircraft with CFM 56-2 engines,which gave the planes new leases on life. Two of my former employers(United Airlines and U.P.S. respectively) operated the largest fleets of these aircraft(renamed Super Seventys after the retrofit) up to their retirement(United retired the DC-8 fleet in October 1991,U.P.S. retired theirs around October 2009-about 40 some odd years after some of these aircraft had made their first flights).
