Or is wrong just wrong? That is a question that has bugged me lately. Here is the context.
I have various tractors I want to repair/restore/revive/revitalize, whatever. Most are missing the original engine; some have been re-powered. Some need a Clinton A700 or B700 series engine. I can buy older Briggs engines that will work, but they are the wrong year, make and model. For a few dollars more, I can get a Clinton engine, but it is the wrong year & model. Even if I find the correct model & year, it still isn't the engine that came with the tractor. Even if I get the original engine, I can't match the paint, or have to re-manufacture a missing part.
When is "wrong" acceptable?
