If i rebuild a diesel motor and want to store it for a while would it be okay to coat all of internals of the block with cosmoline? will it just breakdown once the motor is fired up and running?

How about engine fogging oil, protection during long-term storage is what it's made for. Google for more info.

Lubriplate No. 105 assembly lube. White lithium based, ans will stay soft for years. Then just do a short run, and change oil when you start it up.

cosmo can get pretty hard after years. I think I would coat the innards with assembly lube or red n tacky grease.

save the money on the cosmo and use if for your guns that you may have to soon bury. :(

My opinion. Coat all parts with oil. Put oil rag in exhaust and intake port.

I did that about 45 years ago. Oil dripped off the new cam and when I finally got it running the cam self destructed. I now use oil on everything except the cam where I use grease and since haven't had any issues with storage before start.

Thanks all, I got my laugh for today. Not about your cam self destruct but burying the guns. What gun? My cosmo spray gun?
