Thread: Dichromating Question

  1. #1

    Default Dichromating Question

    I recently had an old model 4160 (390 CFM) rebuilt by a local shop. During the process, he media blasted it which took the plating off. While I like how the carburetor looks now, I'm left wondering...is the plating necessary, or can I leave it as-is? Thanks.

    If you live in a dry area, it should be OK. If you live near the sea, then the bare bodies will eventually start to show corrosion.
