First I cleaned the whole thing with "Gunk" to remove as much of the oil and baked on oil as possible, scrubbing hard with a tooth brush and a small brass wire brush and letting it soak overnight. I had a lot of oil leaks which had crusted up on the surface (especailly the top side not shown in the photo) .
The lower exchanger in the photo is after cleaning with the Gunk.
Using a "medium coarse" wheel type wire brush on an electric drill followed by a "fine" cup type wire brush took all the stains and corrosion away and polished the surface. I will probably do another pass with a polishing compound on the bottom side to make it shine some more.
