Sorry, is it true that NO other country got this sticker. I'd just be 
surprised if it was US only, but I guess it WAS written in English.

Speaking of English, how about the dipstick? Ours say Oil, but I 
think old ones said Oel. Any idea if they actually made different 
ones for different markets (different languages?) I don't recall seeing 
ANYTHING in the microfilm that mentions different part #s for parts 
in different languages.
