NOTWITHSTANDING the rapid industrial development that has taken place in Australia during the last decade, the economy of this country is still largely geared to our primary industries. Therefore, with one or two relatively recent exceptions, our requirements of such equipment as cars, trucks, tractors, earth‐moving machinery, etc. have to be imported from overseas. For this reason the protection of internal combustion engines against rusting and corrosion during shipping is a matter of vital importance to us; particularly so when we receive equipment on our wharves in especially poor condition, simply due to failure on the part of manufacturers to carry out adequate corrosion preventive and packaging procedures prior to despatching their goods. Most mechanical equipment used in primary production and contracting work is of a seasonal nature and because of this, protection of engines during shutdown and storage also constitutes a definite problem.
