You should be good to go from your description.high tide said:I have a question about zincs, do they wear out or stop working. I put new zincs on my outboard last year and they seem to be in good condition no pitting or lost of zinc do they need to be changed. thanks Rick
Exactly.... If they look that good pull them, clean the contact spots and reinstall. It can't hurt to give those mounting screws/bolts a little exercise every year.KING MARINE OUTBOARD said:Sometimes if they look good thats not good unless your a trailer boater. If they look good they are usually not working. If you leave your boat in the saltwater for any amount of time they usually have a little bit of erosion even on a perfect system. Even when they look good they should be checked for continuity to ground. If they get corrosion behind them or they are mounted on a painted area on the drive or midsection they may not have a path to ground. If you don't have a volt meter to check ,its always a good idea to remove the anode clean it with something abrasive to remove the oxidation and be sure to clean the mounting area and fasteners. This system needs to work just like a battery connection if its dirty or has a poor connection it won't work.
