  • DF140 Rust

    The attached picture is from an used DF140 engine that I'm looking to buy. Somehow the inside has salt from water splashes/drops and all metal parts are rusty. The fuel filter (not showing in the picture) seems also rusted. Is this picture normal or is there a posibility that the engine was under water or a water hose was damaged ?

    my 2 cents: I have a 2009 DF175 with about 500 hours, on Long Island Sound NY and mine does not have any corrosion like that.

        I wouldn't consider that motor. Might have been submerged, but even if not, it wasn't cared for very well. You'd just be buying someone else's neglect.
