There is corrosion and rust all over this motor. It cam from Alberta so I assume that not only was it stored outside before I bought it but also it's brief life was spent in the salty sea air of a coastal city.
for a motor that allegedly has only 18K km on it there is a surprising amount of corrosion. Aluminum oxide even inside gasket and seal surfaces. Now it seems I have to take this motor apart if for no other reason than to make sure everything inside is all right and not filled with corrosion and who knows what?
