Re: Repainting motor help

I sprayed mine with brake cleaner a couple of times...brushed away all the paint that bubbled or loosened up with small bronze wire brushes...painted all exposed rust on steel parts with the stock solution sold in auto parts stores for converting red rust to black/grey oxide...sprayed with brake cleaner again...brushed with bronze brushes again...used a 100# air nozzle to blow away all loose stuff in the crannies and wiped the engine down with microfiber cloths. Then I sprayed a couple of coats of Yanmar/Mack grey paint on her from spray cans. Engine looks pretty good.
