Getting interesting ------ this is the first time , for me.
I have seen many uses of color spray cans for marking material
for disposal --or --- part of a QC program .
Green may mean dispose of by auction . -----say a major change was made at VW
like all new blocks must have spray hole bosses on the castings. (for turbo)
I noticed that the picture I saw of one had no stamping where the engine type is
normally stamped. ----- I would consider a block like the one on picture a good
deal at 1000 US dollars.
The world is awash in surplus material ----look at the planes in the US desert.
VW pulled the pin on US production ---and surplus was disposed of by auction ,
Some of the stuff wound up in Canada. (I am guessing a bit)
Some years ago brand new engine blocks wound up in the dumpster here for
no reason but to make room in a warehouse. --- strange world indeed.
This computer I got on auction , the digital camera I got on auction ------
The land I sit on I got on auction.------all well below normal price.
Military disposal is Mad Hatter stuff all the way.------about that some other time.
