Upon further inspection I did find some green paint behind, and to the
right, of the oil filter.  Near wear the block bolts up to the transmission.
Looks like my engine is of the "striped" variety.  No green paint near the
head, or the oil pan as far as I can tell.  Just the remnants of a green
stripe midway across the block.
