Nice find, if I had a place to store it I would buy one just for spare parts.

I don't think the green engine is the same as a silver engine,or the red engine either.
The color means something..

The model number looked right, except to the last 99, mine in 40. I was thinking parts, turbo, manifolds, heads. I don't know.

For the past several months I've been following a DD engine forum and remember the engine color topic being discussed there. If I got it correct, the green engines were not designed with intercoolers. One of the comments called it the "green leaker" and another said he thought they were mostly used in marine applications.

I don't know if any of this is correct.

Detroits had a million configurations.
Improved cooling heads,2 valve heads,4 valve heads,green heads silver heads,red heads.
All kinds of turbos,all kinds of HP ratings,D-Deck engines,mechanical engines,by-pass blowers,straight blowers.
Just ask Ed Wimberly what kind of stuff you run into.
Having a spare engine means having a forklift too!

All of the marine engines i have seen were white in color.
Most were not leakers,dry engines.
Wondered why,then it hit me,no muffler on a boat,no back pressure,hmmmmm...

Never owned a boat (other then a row boat when I was 12 years old). I would think an engine in a boat would have a better life then in a bus. True or not? Seems like they would run moderate rev's under lighter loads.

I think they run good RPM's and loads at least they do going by my house. I have them pass by here all day long everyday in tugs. No mistaking that 2 stroke sound. Even those are being slowly retro fitted with Cummins now. The difference is heat dissipation for longevity I think. Lots of fresh cold water all you could want.

The green engines as far as I understand don't have many of the updates our Red and Silver do. Not the same engine.

Woody should be able to to tell you and I am sure will chime in here.
