Mercury mariner 200

Have just stripped down a 1999 model carb job

Any one know what this is in the water ways? Looks like an anti protectant has been pumped through it after build? Yellow ish product protectant I presume


The engine failed due to port side thermostat being bunked up with said stuff,,, I thought it was a piston pin with a missing clip that caused it but the whole one Side of engine has all been nipped on the pistons due to heat,,, this is a very low hr engine,,,
Hence I am thinking this said potion caused said failure , it's well adhered coated where it touches

Any ideas? Do I need to remove it ?

Silly question, but does it melt if you warm it? I'm wondering if someone's done something really stupid like trying to run it up in oil to keep the waterways from corroding.

Not tried but can do tomoz

I have stripped my fare share of outboards and jet ski lumps and have never in my life seen this nor heard of it
Well strange.

I was informed it sat in a river lots, now thinking may Brits been submerged but there is no corrosion on Steel components and carbs are mint

At last good news apparently this is coated from new, obviously every engine I have stripped has done many hrs and this has been worn away hence no coating visible..

So I appear to have a genuine low hr engine,
