I have a yamaha 200 4stroke motor and need to know if i need to remove the cowl and spray with crc 56 like the 2 stroke motors do for corrosion resistance? Or do i leave it alone?

i've always used silicon spray on any motor ive had and its done wonders...always kept the little brackets, wire holders, rims around the plugs, etc...clean and resistant to corrosion.

WD-40 has barium in it and that has a reaction to salt = corrosion so WD40 is not advisable to use in a saltwater environment. The best product I have used is Boeshield T-9 it is made by Boeing aviation and is what they use on planes ....

It's expensive but worth it, "corrosion block". It'l come out with a blueish tint, but the stuff stay's. One other thing you guy's may want to try (I do it every time and strongly recommend it to other's) is "salt away". Use the "salt away" during your engine flush. You can buy a set of muff's and a mixing cup from salt away, that has a rinse (just fresh water) and salt away positions on the valve. Run your engine on the hose until it get's warm, then run the salt away through it. It not only break's down the salt, but leaves a protective film on the internal passages in the outboard. I have a pair of 2000 Honda's, the water passages look like brand new. Just thought I'd pass it along. Frank

Don't know for sure, I get mine thru a wholesale supplier. I would expect someone like West Marine (as already mentioned) could get it for you. It's good stuff. Frank

I'm alway's looking for a "better" product and looked at the pages you put up. I didn't see where they said anything about, the lubricant/protectant evaporation rate. I am willing to make a call, as I've seen the product before, but have not used it. If it doesn't conduct electricity (insulates), doesn't wash off or evaporate, it oughta be some good stuff.

I used WD-40 for years, no problems. Now,
using Boeshield. Must be better, it costs more. :D

I spray de powerhead, mounting bolts, steering bolts
and lug nuts (wid anti-sieze on de studs). After 5 years,
I had to pull steering cylinder and nuts came off like it
was installed yesterday.

It stays on the motor pretty good. One of Yamaha's east coast techs turned me on to it. My motors seem more trouble free from electical problems under the hood since I started to use it.I spray it down every couple months.

Been using salt away every once in a while and lightly rinse. Then coat with corrosion block. Tech said to stay away from belts. Seems to be working well.
