That's it for now until I start to reassemble the motor.   But, before I do I need to seal everything with Shark Hide.

Mike

Just what is this "Shark Hide" you speak of?  Found it on Eastwood.com, very very interesting.  Do You have experience using this product w aluminum that is exposed to this sort of heat?

Interesting, I just looked it up on sharkhide.com. Never heard of this stuff before but looks really nice. I wonder how it applies over paint and whether its necessary or not. Do you have experience with this stuff on bikes Wango?

Trek -
I may have mispoke about using it on "everything".  I've used it on aluminum sided trailers and it does a great job protecting the finish from oxidation.  I've decided to put it on parts of the casing covers to see what happens. 

HOWEVER, I do NOT recommend applying on engine parts that get super hot.  The boiling point of this product is 215 F in its' wet state.  Not sure how well it holds up on a hot motor after it has cured.

It goes on wet and leaves a protective coating and time will tell how good it protects on the pieces I've chosen to use it on.  Because it's pricey stuff I would definitely get other opinions before you buy some.

definitely keep us updated on this product once you have clocked some miles. It's made of resins and solvents - the solvents dissipate immediately on application (or so it says on their webpage). I don't see any heat warnings on the webpage.

It was designed to protect aluminum hulls.  It is classified as an acidic cleaner protectorant.  I don't think it would do well over paint.

Play it safe and do more research.

If you have a little time and a few small aluminum parts just lying around maybe you need to perform some heat tests.  coat, dry, place in 250 degree oven for 30 minutes...then another at 350, and so on.

Yeah after painting my original jugs black with VHT 2000 F paint and curing it in our oven for 6 hours - and smelling up the house - there's no way my wife will let me near the oven again!  :o

Not a bad idea for a test though Trek.

Ill check w alpha...maybe he has tried this stuff.  He found clearcoat didnt do the trick.  So, hes been powdering polished parts for a while now.  could you send me a link to the exact product you are using...or did I have the right stuff I found on eastwood?

Under "Products" I have the "Metal Protectant".  I haven't tried the spray can, just have the quart can.

Yeah, I thought about using the dishwasher, but I hate doing dishes.  Seriously, I have access to a sonic cleaner which works so much better.  I'm saving up my "good husband" points so I can reassemble my motor on the kitchen table this winter.   ;D
