OK, another starter to install after the last one came apart after 33 miles. Lots of duck marsh time in the water maybe a foot deep. Anyway there was evidence of water in the starter and in the reoil cover. I was diligent in sealing all parts when installing. I wrapped the starter seams with flex tape, sealed the positive pole with rtv and cut new gaskets for both the starter and recoil cover. I failed to seal the two bolts on the end of the starter. So this water seems to be a weakness and I was wondering if others had tried other ideas. I am thinking of flex steeling the whole thing. I am hesitant on the rtv of the gaskets as they become difficult to remove if fails again. An y help is appreciated.
