I'm switching from an air gap intake to a closed intake. The air gap is impossible to keep clean under the carb. What do you folks think will work best to coat the new intake before it gets used?

Thanks, Woody

I would suggest Eastwood's Diamond Clear coating. It comes in gloss: http://www.eastwood.com/ew-...d-surface-11-oz.html or satin finish: http://www.eastwood.com/e-w...d-surface-11-oz.html

I've used this on bare cast aluminum intakes before and have been very happy with it. It seals up the surface so dust and dirt won't adhere and discolor the aluminum. It creates a barrier that is washable so you can wash any dust off the engine from time to time.

Clear powder coat works well or if you want a natural look something like this might work.
