spraying powerhead

This is discussed somewhere before. I know boeshield, etc. is used to spray and water proof the powerheads.  I prefer to use the brp silicone spray all over the powerhead, since is light in consistency( not gooey to work on the areas later). I spray periodically in the season; not just at winterization put away.  Can I spray good amounts down in the stator winding area and up under as much as I can get access to? Will it be a problem in that rotational electric zone? E60dplscb motor. Thanks

Pure silicone spray will not hurt anything, unlike heavy coatings of a petroleum tar-like or waxy type of spray could.

A light spray is all that is needed. If you are getting water inside the motor cover, look for transducers or other transom mounted items that may be spraying against the motor and being ingested through the air intake on the back. Be sure there are no leaks around the engine block and that the motor cover seal is in good shape.

Re: spraying powerhead

Thanks, I don't get water under the cover. I just want to coat all the surfaces, including all electrical, stator,etc. to prevent corrosion. Thanks for responding
