RE: [DMCForum] Electrolytic corrosion/Martin, Bill, Walt

Sacrificial Anode!
Marine engines have them.
Sometimes they screw into the water-jacket.
Kind of like your hot water heater used to have.
A plumber told me once that the anodes can deteriorate in a few years. If
people would replace the anode every two to three years, the water heater
tank would last a lot longer.

I'm going to make a crazy suggestion and let you deal with it however
you see fit.

On submarines, we have the same problem. How does one keep a giant,
steel turd from rusting?

Our answer: Zincs.

We mount large zinc bars directly to the hull in a variety of places,
inside and out. The current is diverted to them, and they corrode
instead of the hull. When they are basically a bar of white ash, we
simply unbolt and replace them.

Could we employ something on a smaller scale for our cars?
