Engine hours how many over 10k hours?

I'm curious if anyone or many people have managed to get their engines passed the 10k hours mark?

If the pen is mightier than the sword, then my keyboard must be a nuclear missile!

Many times with non-turbo Detroit 71's. And seen WWII 671's that ran into the 80's commercial fishing without overhaul. Clean oil and lower rpms will do it every time.
