Personally I'd replace the word 'properly' with 'well enough that it won't foul up too quickly and we won't get sued when some numpty gets his hand chopped off trying to put muffs on with the engine in gear'.
If the manufacturers were that concerned about corrosion,Suzuki wouldn't have made an entire range know as 'alka-seltzers' and we'd have teflon lined waterways by now.
Call me cynical, but what we get is what we pay for. It's not a bad thing-if we got the ultimate long life engines, we'd be paying far more for them than we do now.
