Engine re-painting

Hello all,

I have an old Force 85HP from 1988 and it works fine.
In a several places unfortunately rust can be seen. I would like to clean it and re-paint, but not sure what primer/paint should be used.
Could you please recommend me something?

Also, I would be grateful if someone can explain me why what and why we put anodes on the engine. Do I need any? Sorry for maybe silly question but if I do not ask I will not know.

Thx.

Anodes work when you're engine is in the water, if you don't put it in the water you won't need the anodes, also the little one under the trim plate, if it has a Skegness on it, will adjust you're steering track.
Paint wise, use etch primer as some bits are Ali and the primer will stick on both, I've just used two pack, base coat and clear lacquer on the MacRib boat with fairly good results

Yes, indeed... I saw your work done on MacRib and it's inspired me to repaint mine.
Thanks for your tips.
