Clean Engine From Salt
Hi, I would like to know how is the best way to clean the engine from salt water. If we can spray water all over the engine or not or there is a special spray to clean it. help please.

Bombardier makes a Spray Can lube for this purpose, spray the
motor in advance of any running in salt water is their recommendation.
I would keep an eye on moving parts like steering, throttle cable, etc.
If you see oxidation and/or rust then rinse and lubricate with a salt/water dispersant like the Bombardier product.
I run in salt water also, but this seems to be a pretty sealed up unit,
not that worried about it. Of course you definitely want to flush
it out with fresh water after a salt water run and wash the outside
including your trailer.
I wouldn't use WD40, gets kind of messy. For many years that was

CRC 656......way cheaper than Bomb lube. I do however use Bomb. lube for fogging my 2 stroke. THe CRC comes in large bottles and can be poured into a spray bottle. Lasts much longer than a can of Bomb. lube. A decent coat will also help prevent salt from sticking to some surfaces.
Saltaway is also supposedly good. I use it, others think it's a waste of $. No way to prove it either way, so I use it.

Instead of spending a fortune on Salt-a -way, just use some dishwasher non suds detergent mixed with water. It works the same. Salt-a-way is just a detergent confirmed by lab tests done by a club member.
