Prepping the oil sump for Reiff install
I want to install the Reiff oil heaters on my O-360 A1A. I installed the cylinder bands last year.
The Reiff instructions say to remove any "anodizing" and paint from the sump's surface then clean with Acetone.
I confess my ignorance: are oil sumps aluminum and are they anodized?
If so what should be used to remove that?
And if you remove paint/anodizing from the sump on an area larger than the
glue surface of the heating pad, is that exposed surface now susceptible to corrosion? If so, what's the best way to seal it? Some of the Epoxy?
