Hi all, I was also wondering the best method of cleaning a a bit of rust scale out of exh manifolds, not much there but might as well clean up before putting motor back together, many thanks.

sharkman, the easiest way would be to have a radiator shop boil it out for you, most shiops can do this for a reasonable cost.

CLR does work on the rust scale. I use vinegar for calcium / salt buildup inside outboards and I/O's
