Some more crank paint. I wonder what it all means?

What part # is on your oil pan?


The oil pan was replaced with this repop, which looks like a 68-69 Hemi pan. Don't know the reason why? There was no windage tray either. I had heard that the 66 pans had a smaller capacity; is that true? If so, maybe that's why it was replaced.

I've rebuilt plenty of engines in my day & I've never seen a painted crankshaft. Has anyone else seen one?
As warranty was limited on the hemi,maybe this is a replacement under warranty n they used the paint to vertify this.Just a guess not sure??

I’ve seen small splotches at times on all different manufacturers, but nothing as big as those.

I'm sure you would mention a maltese cross. May a shift change? A frustrated artist?

Read a little more about the Water Test. One theory is that they may have seen some sort of flaw, so they pressurized it to check for leaks. Mine turned out to have a casting defect in a valve seat, and some obvious grinding in the chamber. That could explain the WT.

According to the previous owner, my crank was replaced under warranty. I haven't had the pan off to see if there's any paint on it.
