Alum won't rust, but will dull. Painting fins and head are more rare and keep the heat in more, so best to not paint those. Maybe should go Custom and polish the block! Wouldn't that be a long hard thing to do. I paint mine all over while apart, sometimes less in flywheel and side under the shrould, but rest gets painted. I just use same paint as on the tractor, never had any blister off yet.
painting my engine ... or not

I've seen several polished engines in the minibikes world. Someone did this one a few years ago. Tecumseh H50 all hand polished. It started out as a grubby engine.

I can't believe how someone was able to get into the tight places to polish that. I don't think I'll be doing that to my engine.It is nice though.
