Don’t Store Engine Parts in Newspaper

When taking apart an engine you need to wrap parts of it to save them getting dusty or just because you don’t want to put them on the floor, one thing you might have to hand is an old Newspaper.

It might seem like a brilliant idea to wrap your pistons and crankshaft in old newspaper, but it may actually cause damage!

The newspaper absorbs moisture in the air around which when wrapped around your metal engine parts can cause rust if left for too long, which you¬†definitely¬†don’t want!

Also the inks and print of the paper could rub off and depending which engine parts you wrap in the paper, that could cause you more problems.
