>Arn't the center engines on DC-10/MD11 and LT-1011 aircraft different >from the under wing engines?

Engines can be different in configuration based on what position they're
installed on the airplane.

For example on the L-1011, the number two engine has two hydraulic
pumps, whereas the number 1 and 3 engines only have one hydraulic pump.

Same applies to the 727 where nbr 3 engine doesn't have a hydraulic pump
at all.

So basically, the engines are the same, but are differently configured
based on where they get hung on the airplane.
