Yesterday I plowed about 2-3" with a '98 Dodge p/u equiped with the 360 engine. After I had finished my route, I opened the hood just to give everything a quick look over and was really surprised how much salt spray had collected inside the engine compartment. Underside of the hood and engine had turned white. I typically angle the plow while traveling from job to job. Would it be better to keep the blade straight? Is it something unique to this truck - I know that some of the diesel's don't have much extra room under the hood possibly preventing the spray from splashing in. I'm actually not sure if the salt spray is coming from underneath the truck or in through the front grill. Since I don't have a heated garage, I'm a bit afraid to wash the engine this time of year. By the looks of my crusty manifolds, I know salt is busy working. Just seeking advise from other fellow plowers to see what should be done to keep the truck from deteriorating too much. Thanks for your advise. Steve.
