hey guys,

i was wondering what the running temps for these motors are?
I have it apart at the moment and ive been thinking of powder coating the case and a few odds & ends with this powder finish to maybe color match my frame the same.

I personally don't care for powdercoat at all on engine components. Stock engines are probably OK if you only do the cases, but don't get into the jugs or head. Hi-Po engines are gonna run hotter and need all the cooling they can get. I don't really even like spray bombs for an engine, so I only paint the top case like the factory did, and the rest I leave raw/beadblasted.

I did soda blast the bottom case and it looks pretty good i just didnt get it as clean as i would like but... you do seem to be the man with the answers so guess i wont be doing that which is ok with me wasn't really looking foward to taping all that off. Im starting to get all the parts i need to start getting it back together so i hope to get some pics up soon
