View Full Version : Rust in spindle water jacket?

01-23-2012, 12:03 AM
Today I cleaned out my water tank and removed the water pump. The pump was all full of corrosion and I decided that antifreeze might be better to run than straight water.

Then I got to thinking: What would I do if the spindle water jacket had rust in it?

Anyone have any experience with this? I have no idea how the water circulates around the spindle, but I'm assuming the jacket is made of aluminum since the spindle case is aluminum. Anyone ever have to replace a spindle water jacket due to rust?
