Jerry, I know that the M14 was a variant of the M1 Garand design, but in terms of being auto fire capabilty, the M14 is a descendant of the BAR. Only 1 or two per squad had auto fire capability, so equivalent to the BAR and M1 uses in WW2. Everyone else in the squad had a semi-auto M14.

I trained on the M14 and when I got to Viet Nam i was issued an M16 and told to go find some ammo for it. My first road trip the driver could not carry a weapon and the 2 other guys had no ammo so I gave them 1 each the 3 I had and on the trip the convoy got hit and we were stuck in the kill zone with no ammo because of the cover fire laid down when the command-detonated mind went off and blocked the road.

Motors or engines? A friend calls internal combustion power plants engines. Motors he say are used in electrical applications. I told him that I had never heard of an engine-cycle, only a motor-cycle!

"Motors" use an external source of power, like air, electricity, vacuum, or hydraulic pressure. "Engines" burn a fuel to supply the power to run them, either internally, like gasoline, alcohol, or Diesel, or externally with steam. A steam "engine" could be called a "motor", I guess, if the steam is generated off-site from the mechanism that generates the motion. Ever seen a windshield wiper "engine"? I haven't!

Learning the terminology the first week of body & fender trade school a lifetime ago the instructor said, relative to fender vs quarter panel that "fenders" bolt on and "quarter panels" are welded on. To this day when I hear one of the TV "experts" refer to a rear "fender" or front "quarter panel" on a domestic, non unitized body vehicle I cringe. US built cars haven't had rear "fenders" since the manufacturers started welding them on. "Fender Skirts" are still called fender skirts since they were invented when the rear wheel opening panel was in fact a fender even though they may be installed on what is now a quarter panel.
