CORROSION
CONTROL
ANODE
Your outboard has a corrosion
control anode installed
on the gear case. An anode
helps protect
the out-
board
against galvanic
corrosion
by sacrificing
its
metal
to be slowly
eroded
instead of the outboard
metals.
The anode (C) requires periodic inspectionespecially
in salt water which will accelerate the erosion. To
maintain this corrosionprotection,always replace the
anode before it is completely eroded. Never paint or
apply a protectivecoating on the anode as this will re-
duce effectiveness of the anode.

SUBMERGED
OUTBOARD
A submerged
outboard will require service within a
few hours by the nearest
Sears Service Center once
the outboard
is recovered
from the water. This im-
mediate
attention is necessary
once the engine is ex-
posed
to the atmosphere
to minimize
intemal corro-
sion damage
to the engine.
