I appreciate you’re trying to avoid purchasing any new products, but I’d suggest trying Racegalze AluBright Deoxidiser....

If you can find someone doing walnut shell blasting you could ask if it would be suitable for aluminium.

I seem to remember reading on here a long while back, someone using a household product to drastically improve / remove loads of crud from a bike they were doing - worked a treat...

For the life of me though, I cannot remember what it was, maybe someone will...

Thanks all.

Engine is out. It’s going to a professional.

Yes.

I’ve seen YouTube videos of people using aerosols of proprietary oven cleaner to gussy up engine blocks but I don’t know if aluminium reacts happily to that...
