It's common to refer to the hours "since overhaul" or "since full rebuild". In the aircraft industry they have a term "SMOH" (Since Major OverHaul.

It's NOT considered O/K to leave that reference out and imply it's a factory new engine. That's regarded as deceptive although a properly rebuilt engine is equal to new, even better in some cases if the time was taken to "blueprint" it.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
