Default Painting an engine: Cr80r

     

Alright, I picked up a shifter kart last night. Looks like crap. It's completely ghetto and rigged, but the engine is perfect and performs perfect. This guy spray painted like the whole kart while it was together so it's horrible looking. I was wondering if I need to get special paint to paint the engine, or can I just go for it? With Rustoleum paint. And I am going to use rustoleum auto primer as well. I believe they have paint made for car engines that's resistent to extreme temperatures, should I get that? Or can I pressure wash my engine and take the paint off? I don't want to spray water in between my gaskets and blow through and into the engine. As I have seen people do. Thanks in advance. Oh and where can I find the biggest sprocket possible for my engine? I was looking On eBay. I just want this to be fast and fun until my cbr600 comes in the mail. But that will be in another thread.

Take the engine apart, use chemical mean to remove paint, I would pay a blaster to soda blast it, clean it WELL, then paint it ( someone will need to chip in about the best paint etc ).
I've had GREAT results using a black automotive high temp paint, it didn't use a primer and looks great! It's not a durable PC ( Id recommend a good PCer that deals specifically with engines and he is reasonable-PM me for details ).

Will do. I am getting the kart all powdercoated after I finish my engine mount for it. I want it fully functional before I take it apart for paint.

Another question, how can I tell the year of this engine? I will just ask the guy I got it from I guess, but should I just analyze every difference from 2000 and up? I know it's a 2000 something. Thanks. Took the whole engine apart. Can you powdercoat it?

Personally, for rattle can paint, I like Duplicolor engine enamel. I recently did my cr250 engine with it and it looks great and has held up to 7 days in the Moab sand.

Did you happen to paint it silver? I have a 95 cr engine to paint, the factory finish is coming off, and I want a close match to factory finish that will hold up.

thnx

I didn't think the 95 cr engines were painted when they came from the factory. I know my 96 isn't.

I don't have a paint match for the 92-07 CRs, but I have a powder coat
match. The Right side case cover, clutch and water pump covers were
painted to match the bare castings of the center cases, cylinder and
cylinder head. I spent quite a bit of time and money (ordering small
quantities of powder and coating sample plates), before I came up
with a match. The original color was called Silvadillo, but the
manufacturer changed the name to Wheel Silver II.

Here's a couple of pictures. The first one shows some of the sample plates
I produced along with a "failed" color match on my test clutch cover.

The second picture is the Silvadillo/Wheel Silver II on the Right side case,
clutch and water pump cover. The clutch cover on the Left is a brand new
OE cover just out of the box, that I used for comparison.

Semi-gloss black. The jug is not painted.

The cases/covers are definitely not bare aluminum, there is a coating on them for sure.

Thanks for that dogger. Im going with the rattle can and found some duplicolor that looks very close to original.
