Hello. I am new to the boating world and need some advice. I just purchased a used Nissan 5hp NS5B outboard and it needs a little cleaning and painting. Can i use engine gunk cleaner on the lower half of the outboard? And would it be ok to brush the lower half then power wash it? Is it ok to let the degreaser soak in? Want to prep it for a nice fresh coat of paint. Can I spray it as is or should i break it down a bit? Any advice anyone could give me would be appreciated.
