Engine painting

Do I hit this side of the engine with some paint before the plate goes on? I painted 1 side of the plate for the Farmall H that faces the rear.

Guess I am think a little protection from rust can't hurt.

Darn I just got in from painting those pieces :cry:
Guess I should have waited a day to see the replies. Just getting in the put together mode and wanted to get the clutch and engine bolted on.

And I did such a nice job with the rattle can too :x
Thanks guy's for the tips

NO!--Do not paint any surface that bolts to another or particularly one that takes a gasket. As Glen said bolt it to the rear of the tractor before painting. Strip the piece you have already painted. Rust won't hurt those parts for decades, probably centuries.

Hi Randy; I would only paint those areas that are to be exposed. Not familiar with that particular engine, but anything that mates to it you do not want paint to interfer with it mating propery. I would also go a head and bolt on what ever is to be bolted on so it can all be painted at the same time. Plus, the nuts/bolts get painted too. The exception of course would be anything that is to be painted a different color. Hope this helps.
