Corrosion Protection for the Outboard Motor

In between lead batches, we popped out the old thermostats and put in new ones.

A few months ago you'll recall we tested these, and confirmed they pop open at about 143*, but with the motor still running too hot, it is time to make SURE the 'stats are good.

Besides, it is quick, easy, and not too expensive.

We also gave all the motor a touch-up with spray-on "Liquid Tape". It is basically thick, plastic, spray-paint and works great to give alittle more corrosion protection.

Looks nice, huh!

Oops - lead is hot, back to the lead molds...
