HOME and how to join Forum Open Area General Scott topics Is there anybody out there ?! Re: Help me Brian !


Well maybe you can help me with this, Brian. I’ve noticed a slight leak in the seal of the cylinder barrel and the aluminium blind head dome on my 29 Flyer. Its water , I’m not particularly alarmed, but there is quite significant amounts of salt deposits , I assume from the aluminium corroding.
Does anyone else’s Scott have this ? we have very hard water in our area , should I use distilled or glycol instead ? or is it just due to impurities in the aluminium ? Is the same happening internally or does it only happened when exposed to air ?
