Default Re: painting an engine case

I have painted dozens of VW engines without any problems with the paint peeling. I always paint them flat black. Sending a picture of a painted 1835 CC VW engine that is in my little single seat homebuilt Cub airplane. It runs a little cool, if the temp is 70 deg or less, I have to block air that goes to the oil cooler( red hoses). Cruise is 80 mph @ 2700 rpm, burns 3 gph. Also if you put the engine together right, and use a straight weight oil like the VW owners manual says, you shouldn't have any oil leak problems. Pop
