    PJ -
    I had my new Fastrak delivered a few days ago. Used it Sunday and wow!!! Just amazing! Anyway, was in the garage today familiarizing myself with the engine when I noticed the engine shroud, just beneath the cooling fan was covered with a heavy rust. This doesn't seem right - nothing else on the entire machine (engine, frame, deck, seat pan) has any rust and the machine has not seen a drop of water since I took delivery. Any suggestions? Thanks

    That is the flywheel you are looking at, it is cast iron and will get a thin layer of rust on top just from moisture / condensation in the air.
    Nothing to worry about.
