A kick starter shaft fabricated from SAE 8620 steel reportedly showed rusting on the shaft face due to exposure to atmosphere. The shaft was sent to the laboratory for examining the possibility of application of zinc plating on the splines and the face of the shaft to overcome the rust problem. It is suggested to carry out zinc plating followed by a chromate conversion treatment to prevent oxidation of the shaft surface.
