If you remove the field windings from the starter, do not coat the area where the shoe poles contact the inside of the housing. They need a tight mechanical connection to the housing. Also, do not paint the housing of the magneto. It just encourages more paths for current to jump to places you don't want it to go. Magnetos are happiest when they are clean and dry.
