Air cooled endplates are cast using an alloy that can withstand some pretty serious abuse, certainly a good deal more resilient than the much softer water cooled endplates.A good running air-cooled may not need moly coating. BUT!! All water cooled engines are cast using a different alloy, it's softe...
