Engine needs a shine

While cleaning the boat last fall, I used a can of engine degreaser on the engine. I followed the directions but after I rinsed and it all dried the engine turned chalky on valve covers and top. Any good suggestions on what works best to restore my engine shine that will last?

I would wash again with mild soap and water, then follow up with 303 Aerospace protectant.

Good suggestion! I get that same thing on my car engine after using Gunk. Never heard of that 303 product, I'll have to go hunt for it.

What a difference! I ordered a bottle of 303 and sprayed my engine a month ago. It still looks like the day I applied it. I now use it on all the interior. Great stuff!!
