I just had the motor into the shop to have several things done including rebuild carbs, impeller, tune up and so on. Anyway, I also told them to replace the trim motor if necessary. They checked it out and said it worked fine even though it was badly rusted, and that they did not see any reason to replace the trim motor until it quit because it is fairly expensive. I tend to agree.
I am thinking of applying some type of protective coating to the housing for the trim motor to try and protect and preserve it. Any suggestions? I was thinking of something like a spray on coating, possibly an automotive undercoating material.

LPS-3 spray has never failed to protect my gear, even in saltwater environment.

What prep did you do prior to spraying? My trim motor housing is very rusty. While I want to protect it, I am cautious in sanding/scraping fearing I will dislodge the last remnants of the housing.
Do you have a manufacturer for the spray?

In doing a search I found this description -
LPS3 (11 oz)

LPS-3 looks like a great product and I think I will try it for some other applications and maybe the trim motor. I was actually thinking of something with more body to it, like a spray on undercoating that might be used for automotive purposes.

undercoating works as good as anything. Nothing will stop the cancer....scrape(gently) before you coat and use a good primer.
