Aluminum cleaner?

Looking for an aggressive spray on cleaner for an intake manifold. Just in case I don't find a 2916 Eddy manifold before the Fling, I took my old manifold off and machined it for injectors. I'd like to clean it up before I put it back on. IF I do have to put it back on of course. Smile

What's someone used that clean the heck of aluminum. I don't care if it evens etches it some.

Media blast and powder coat years ago still looks great.

Alumabrite works well too. Dont use on polished aluminum, as it will etch it

Spray it with Eagle One's MAG Wheel Cleaner and finish it with Seymour alumi blast paint and be done with it.

Eagle one stuff works great. Oven cleaner works too in a pinch, similar to the Eagle one stuff.

I've used oven cleaner, toilet cleaner and wheel cleaner, then I paint them black.

I used Eagle one like Mark suggested. I asked the guy behind the counter for the baddest, nastiest stuff he had. And if it will etch the aluminum also, that's a bonus. He walked out to the car detailing shelf and handed me the Eagle one ... He said just leave it on as long as you can without it drying. Worked perfectly for what I wanted.

$12 and $2 at the quarter car wash and I have a clean nice looking EFI manifold now.
Still hope to rustle up a 2916 manifold in time , but that won't keep me from going to the Fling now.

The stuff Mark suggested was pretty aggressive. I think it would make a he11 of a mess using it on a complete engine. I'm certain it would bleach any AN fittings for sure. Or anything anodized.

Luckily, I listened to you my friend. I suspect it will clean and etch as much as you want to leave it on lol.

I just noticed this thread. I found a product that is great for cleaning aluminum, Extreme Simple Green Aircraft cleaner. It's a little hard to come by at times but I was able to get a gallon last summer from Amazon. Look through the customer images on Amazon, it's impressive stuff.

I just tried some CLR for hard water stains.
Small spot on dual plane manifold with gloves and paper towel wet. Wipe on and wipe off. Looks great! I’ll brush some tomorrow and let you know.
