Those engines came in green,black and red I always check the serial number something paint doesn't cover up to many people have been shafted thinking they had a silver 92 when they bought a old green engine with fresh silver paint from the paint overhaul people on ebay

DD made an early 8V92 that was black with flames on the exhaust manifolds, called the owner operator.  I built a glider kit with a new one, it broke a rod at 259K.  Only 92 I ever had a problem with.

Well i ran it for four hours today - no black , white , or blue smoke.
There is a very small drip of oil where the shaft that drives the fan exits the block.
so far so good
