Hi there, i am trying to clean the air fins from the corrosion of the past years. i have tried silicone brushes, nylon brushes but they did nothing major. i tried with my dremel with abrasive wheel mounted but it wont fit between the air fins. i haven't tried wire brushes as i believe that it will scratch badly the engine. any ideas on how to remove the corrosion welcome..

:445 The other option is to take the head and cylinders off and put them in a bead-blaster. See pics :444

Thanks for the tips. I have the wool wire, I bought the ultra fine one and I will use knitting needles to mount the wool wire on. I will start tomorrow and tell you how it is going. Thanks again.if this does not work, then I will think the other option.
