Title says it all -- hoping somebody from MG can chime in here. My dual came with a PTFE v4, all-metal v4, the dual mount, the motor mount, a harness, and this complicated printed part you swirl the wiring through. One of my wires failed, so I was going back through the guide to replace the harness, and it's all different.

I'm printing a newer motor cap thingy (since honestly it looks easier) but what else should I change?

I can send you the write-up for the new machine tomorrow insta....i have to get up at an ungodly early hour tomorrow. The wire cover (hood) over the motors is different, the filament drives are nicer because they have a seat for the clear tubes, and the wrap for the heater wires is greatly improved in the new models. (You should be able to just print the wire hood cover and switch it out though....i think.)

Oh, what the hell....here you go:
