The magnets seem to have a coating on them. Almost looks like chrome or nickle? It's flaking off all of them. Should I be concerned? I was planning on spraying them with AMSOIL Metal protect.

vinman, it is some kind of plating, and it comes off due to corrosion, since you have or are going to remove the fw, you should clean them all, get the plating off and cover them with some kind of corrosion protection and do it regularly so you won't encounter same problem in the future, I have applied it (spray) on them since new and have been able to keep corrosion away, they look like new 

Cheers

If there are signs of rust and corrosion on the flywheel and stator and salt crystals on top of the motor, you have to find the source of the saltwater spray that is causing the problems.  There could be a leak on the motor (check the pressure relief valve and all water hoses and fittings) or the water is being ingested through the motor cover intake vents due to transducer spray or some other item.

Particles of the magnets often end up sticking to the timing lobes on the underside of the FW or the CPS.  Extra strong magnet helps to clean off.

Also pays to recheck FW physical and EMM electronic timing after reinstalling FW.

Could not find any evidence of something spraying in up there. The boats spends 4-6 months on the water... Saltwater just kills everything.

winman, there is a product called  TC-11 corrosion inhibitor in spray form that will create  a film that repeals water and humidity it won't melt or crack, stay flexible, I have been using it for a while now with great results, I spray the engine every 7 - 8 or so month including under the FW, that  last I do with the engine running for even distribution.

Good luck with your repair

Thanks for all your tips. Glad to report got it all together started first turn of key, Sea Trialed for about 1/2 Hr 4000RPM - fluctuated between 54-55.x Volts never stalled or sputtered... Corrosion-X and AMSOIL HD Metal Protect the whole engine and under the flywheel.... Seems to be AOK - Going to run it hard next week.
