engine materials

does anybody know if MV engines have any magnesium parts inside?

the question arrises that i recently noticed that some coolants
have a mark that they should not be used for engines with
magnesium. just wondering whether i have to worry about it
or not.

No magnesium parts that will be in contact with coolant in your MV.
