Not from a 3B but a very late 3A...
Markings as original:
I masked off the lettering when I painted the engine and then repainted them

I have seen one other '3 engine painted red. According to the owner it had
a different numbering code that indicated it was factory rebuilt. I can't
remember for sure what was different about the engine number.

Anyway, does the color of the engine paint suggest it's been rebuilt at one
