Re(12): Gators new motors

As stated, "Gators" is the name of the tractor.
The engines are Rolls Royce / Rover Meteor engines.

A bit of extra info: RR developed the Merlin engine, but after WW2, the writing was on the wall, that jet airplanes would be taking off. They redeveloped the Merlin as the Meteor for tank use - And some early Meteor engines used Merlin crankcases and cylinder rows.
After that, RR and Rover made a swap - RR took over the jet program from Rover and Rover took over the Meteor program from RR, and since then the engines were known as Rover Meteor engines.
