DD green for both the 671 and the Perkins gen set. The DD green also sort of matches the green zinc primer that I use to protect metal. Not knowing better we also color coordinated the engine room with matching green carpeting. Its beer 15+ years so the carpeting is getting a little dirty/stained but I vacuum and dust every month.

Funny story -- my boat was built with a Detroit Diesel, painted Detroit Green. The original owner, Joe Coberley, was good friends with Bill Shepherd, a Cat dealer in southern California. Bill owned a similar boat but with a Cat diesel, of course, and he was forever ragging Joe about how crappy the Detroit was. Finally one day Joe decided to really big Bill, and he painted the engine Cat yellow, which it remains to this day.

Original and classic red but that chrome valve cover on Larry_M's engine is calling to me.

My Mitsu is flat black and I had no idea it was unusual.

And it's leaky flat black at that but I think I finally figured out where the leak is.

An interesting aspect and result of this colorful thread is that engine color is far more popular than the Hall of Fame as a lot more guys have responded to this thread as they did to the Hall of Fame thread. Amazing how unimportant it turned out to be.

Volvos are painted green to constantly remind the owners of the exorbitant price of Volvo parts.

Greetings,
Mr. LaBomba. Yup, looks green to me but it appears to be mounted sideways like the ?what-ever-it-is? in Mr. 45's What's This thread. Nice and clean however.

Your right, it was quite a job but I got it turned the right way. Look good when they're clean don't they.
