Don't know if it's true, but back in the day
they used to tell us that the European and Asian marine Perkins were marketed in red and North American in Blue.
Industrial, generators and farm equipment engines are often painted to match the manufactures chassis color scheme, regardless of the engine manufacture.
But I have seen 6-354's in Canada that were red too. Most U.S. Perkins seem to be blue.
