Default Ariens riding mower question

Hi Guys,
I currently have a Ariens 42" Riding Mower, I've noticed that on the top of the engine (I think its the flywheel) theres a lot of rust getting around the edge and weakening the spark making it run rough. Is there anything that I could spray on it to stop this buildup and eliminate the need for me to wire brush it often? Would WD-40 work or would it stop or weaken the spark more??
Thanks in advance
Joe

It shouldn't be rusting unless it's being left out in rain or it is being kept in a very moist environment. I don't know of anything other than telling you to try to keep it in a drier place when not in use.

Nothing will really stay on the flywheel after you start the engine. I also find WD40 useless as it attracts dirt and makes most problems worse. I use fluid film.

I, unfortunatly, have no sheltered storage. So I have a tarp that I cover my mowers with at the end of the day. Seems to help.

I'd say just throw a cover over it when not in use. How often do you have to use a wire wheel on it?
