Here is a 7.5 minute YouTube video of the WaterHead Boxer engine/transmission being assembled in the factory. It's slow moving and dull, but you get to see the insides of the motor and tranny. Skip the sponsor ad when it displays the skip this add icon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgdkN-LNH6A

Rob, thanks for the vid ... found it to be interesting. German engineering always fascinates.
