Re: Atomic 4

The block is cast iron - not steel, and it does rust, but much slower than steel for some reason. Now, there are two steel plates on the side of the engine, which do rust through. I had that happen to one that I had in a 27 Catalina. I was able to obtain a replacement plate from Moyer Marine in Rock Hall, Maryland and installation only took about 30 minutes.

All the best,
