Re: Going from Fresh Water Cooled to Raw Water Cooled
Just adding. I watched a 15 year old Chevy 454 Crusader, that had been salt water cooled, get torn down once. The block was so corroded, it wasn't even rebuildable (hard to do for a Chevy 454 block). The mechanic doing it, who was a car racer, didn't even want it as a gift.
And, it had been running just a few weeks before that.
On the northern Gulf of Mexico.
