How to paint aluminum for below the water line lower unit, surface drive, marine paint?

These are Italian surface drives that I overhauled. They are cast aluminum of an unknown alloy. I would like to treat them with the best system for below the waterline use. As this boat will be on a hydrolift I want the drives to be gloss black, not anti fouled. So I was thinking Alodine prep with milspec zinc primer and epoxy topcoat. Any suggestions? There are also bronze bushings in the area whree the rudder clevis and hydraulic actuators are, do I need to remove them prior to alodine?
Thanks

Your prep and primer are good, I suggest Awlgrip for your epoxy. It is hard as nails and will hold its shine the best. The prep work is the main thing, better prep, better finish
