    Really? 2 techs had failed to crack open the breathers and look? Pitiful. There HAD to be external clues to that.

    What model? Does it have turbos or intercoolers? A bad turbo or dirty intercooler can cause black smoke. I've never seen all the injectors go bad at the same time. And I've been using 671s since the early 60's. Most ports have an injector service that can rebuild Detroit injectors if it comes to that. Also, every 1000 hours the air box is supposed to be opened and the ports cleaned. Carbon can build up and reduce the port size - restricting air. Anything that restricts air can cause the engine to run rich, including poor vents for the engine room.
