Yes, this works great on exhaust manifolds. An exhaust manifold was my second test part when I was in the 'this is too good to be true' phase of experimentation. Remember, though that the sacrificial cathode has to be in line of sight from the parts you want the rust to disappear from. For big pieces, this usually means you turn it over/turn it around in the bucket a few times to get all the sides and corners.I have a turbo exhaust manifold that has been setting outside for a while and I know there is some big rust flakes inside. do you think this would work for this process? will it remover or loosen the bigger chunks
Yes and no.Can you use a mix of water and vinigar with this?
Wires are copper. Copper in an electrolyte bath can result in copper plating. It's always best to have the sacrificial electrode sticking partially out of the bath so that it's easier to keep a good connection between it and the wire.So when I hook the wire to the part being derusted that wire need to be out of the water? Is that correct?
Cooking spray. (or other light oil) Careful not to get on the part of it you have left to do.i am getting some really good results with this. the only thing is if your part doesnt need to be completely submerged then how do you keep the other end from rusting when you turn it over to do the other side?
Obviously immersing the whole part is best if you can pull it off. If you can't then derust part, treat it with something (phosphate is good), then flip it over and do the other part.i am getting some really good results with this. the only thing is if your part doesnt need to be completely submerged then how do you keep the other end from rusting when you turn it over to do the other side?
Nothing. That's the problem. The oil keeps the electrolyte from getting to the rust.what will happen if the oil is on it when i am derusting
