    White corrosion deposits in engine waterways

    Hi,

    New to the forum so hello! I am rebuilding a 02 RX DI and there are a lot of white corrosion in the top enD water ways as well as the holes where the bolts goes through and the exhaust waterways. Does anyone know of a product that I can flush through the system to clean this out? It is a really hard thick white corrosion which I can only assume is due to salt water running without proper flushing.

    Help much appreciated!

    I myself do not flush. I use a bead blast cabinet loaded with glass beads. I blow through all passages, then blow it out with compressed air, then retap all holes using wd40 and a dewalt drill.

    Blaster also cleans the gasket surfaces really well.

    The glass cuts the gasket and deposits but does not hurt the base metal.

    You sure its not calcium deposits instead of corrosion ?
    Can happen operating in fresh water as well.
    Chemical cleaners or bead blasting will remove quickly as stated

    Hi,

    Thanks for getting back to me. I do not have access to a bead blaster any suggestions on chemical cleaners that might do the job?
