Doing a rebuild on a spare 241c I have and it’s filthy. I want to powder coat it while I have it torn down so it’s easier to keep clean.

Is it safe to get the case halves powder coated? Or will it weaken them too much? I’ve seen them done before so I’m assuming/hoping it’s safe to do.

2nd question - I have everything completely disassembled except for the annular gear that the planetary rides on. Can I leave this in place when it’s getting powder coated? I’m afraid I’ll damage it trying to remove it so if I can’t leave it while it’s in the oven then I’ll just spray paint the case.

Here’s the gear I’m talking about. I’ll remove the bearing beforehand
