Atomic 4

Another NOOB question...

Curiously my little Atomic 4 seems to have been quite happy pumping raw sea water through the cooling system for the past 46 years, but I've heard of many people converting the cooling over to a fresh water system.

What keeps the pour thing from rusting inside / out? I'm thinking the block is steel....are there aluminum sleeves or raceways? Stainless inserts....or is it just a matter of time before she rusts all the way through?
