Default Difference between silver series 6v92 detriot and non silver 6v92 engine

Does anybody by chance know the difference and how to tell the difference between the engine below:

What is a silver 6v92 compared to a standard 6v92 and how would i know which one a coach has and if it really is a silver series? Didn't know if its more horse power or different turbo or guts?


thanks,

Roader

This is from Print Page - Distinguishing a 6V92 silver from a pre-silver Conversions dot Com Bulletin Board [h=2]Bus Discussion => Bus Topics ( click here for quick start! ) => Topic started by: Craig R on November 08, 2006, 07:32:32 AM[/h]

Post by: Craig R on November 08, 2006, 07:32:32 AM [HR][/HR] Is there any simple way to distinguishing a Detroit Diesel 6V92 silver from a pre-silver? Would a pre-silver be called a "green"?

Post by: belfert on November 08, 2006, 07:52:19 AM [HR][/HR] To be certain, I would try calling your local Detroit dealer with the serial number and they should be able to tell you the history of the motor. (At least they can with Series 60. Maybe 6V92s are too old for the database.)

Post by: Eagle on November 08, 2006, 09:14:35 AM [HR][/HR] 6V92 DD Silver engines began with the serial number F83425 any number after that is a Silver engine.
8V92 DD Silver engines began with the serial number F73594 any number after that is a Silver engine.

These began in 1982

Post by: Craig R on November 08, 2006, 10:25:11 PM [HR][/HR] Is that serial number thing true regardless of whether it's a 92N, 92T, TA, TT, TTA or DDEC? ???

Post by: Craig R on November 09, 2006, 10:01:53 PM [HR][/HR] Oops! If it's a DDEC you would know it's newer than '82, wouldn't you?

Not necessarily. I blame it on AGE.

Post by: TomC on November 16, 2006, 04:22:54 PM [HR][/HR] Just Detroit's expression for the engine that had the upgrades from original that made it a better engine. An older engine can be upgraded to Silver statis. Good Luck, TomC

There probably are other changes between "green" and silver engines but certainly the silver is substantially less likely to leak oil. The changes were not all made at once and I can't recall the exact sequence but a little internet research will make it clear. That said, my 1985 engine leaks nary a drop since in-frame overhaul. Before overhaul it was leaking a lot of oil through the head to block interface that some idiot had used RTV instead of the appropriate o-ring to seal.
