Hi Danny,

I understand what you are saying here, but I would NEVER use WD40 on
anything that I wanted not to corrode. WD40 might be fine at
dispersing the
water initially , but its chemical makeup makes it hydrophilic (ie it
attracts water), better in my humble opinion to use a product that it
intrinsically hydrophobic (ie repels water) like INOX...I don't carry
WD 40.
If you want to test the theory, get an old rusty tool, wire brush all
rust off it, spray it with WD40 and in 6 months I guarantee it will be
rusty the same with INOX and it will be a looooong time
you see any signs of rust again.

Hi All,
these sort of problems arise from corrosion in our salt laden
atmosphere, any electrical connection is vulnerable. The answer is to
liberally and regularly spray all connections, alternators and electric
engines in the engine room with WD40 or in NZ CRC 5.56. (It feels
to spray a liquid into an electric motor but it works) Avoid rubber
componants as much as possible (not vital) DO NOT use lubricant
products, as these may be electrically conductive with resultant
They may be longer lasting in stopping rust but that is not our issue
WD 40 (WD = water dispersant)Â It gets in below and replaces it.

Hi to all,
at sunset , sailing Water Bligh, Fiji, I had to start my Yanmar to
go to
anchorage. Nothing…no engine. At the moment I remembered a similar
situation when we were sailing Eolie, Italy. It was the ground solenoid
fault. A W40 spray under the black rubber cover button solved the
And it was also in this very adrenalitic situation.

Now for me it is enough ! I want to eliminate/ bypass the ground
Any suggestions ?
If I directly connect the 2 black cables, what about the others
cables arriving to solenoid ?
May I have problem to switch off the engine ?
Thanks so much in advance
