I am repowering, and have taken delivery
of the new engine
, a Yanmar 3YM30
. The engine
has numerous steel parts
and fasteners that are unpainted (e.g. water
pump bracket; starter solenoid). I think it might be a good idea to prime/paint these items before I get the engine in the boat. Otherwise, I think rust will set in promptly. Seems nuts to be painting a new engine. Has anyone else taken this approach? Any recommended paint
? spay can of "Yanmar Gray"? Or spray cold galvanizing? or zinc chromate?
