I hope you use good protection equipment when using that!
Zinc chromate is some NASTY stuff, aerosol particles get all over place.
Hope you don’t have a dog or kids that could get exposed to particles.
I still believe that all the crap my dad was exposed to as an airline mechanic killed him courtesy of lung cancer. Zinc chromate is used a lot on planes.
He’s not the only mechanic to retire and then die from cancer.
I know of 2 others he was close friends with.
I also went to school for auto body and got extensive training on hazards of paints/chemicals. Some things are deadly, and gotta protect yourself(properly) from them. I always cringe when I see guys spraying w/o respirator or wearing just a dust mask.
Anyway rant over, awesone engine build as usual.
