Jim,

Use this Blackstone link. Click on the 2006 listing, which is the first production run. If your locomotive part # is listed there, then you have a very good chance to have a Chinese factory, over oiled motor locomotive.  BUT...be aware that not all of the first run K27's came over from China with over oiled motors and some, if a used loco, have had their motors replaced by Blackstone with good motor assemblies.

Is there a way to tell by the numbers on the locomotive box which were the earlier engine with over oiling problem and which were later engine without the problem. Jim
