In main cleaning I used "mechanic hand wash paste" (Merida PA33), i use it to wash my hands after engine works etc., it has gel cosistency & is pretty delicate, but very efficient in greasy dirt removing (way more efficient than soap). At first i used it with paint brush, later with sponge, no scratches etc.what did you use to clean turbine blades......warm soapy water? looks good Wladek
I also can wait ...but not too longCAN WAIT TO SEE IT TOGETHER
Made rebuild of tank fuel level sender, as sometimes float was stucking somewhere in a middle due deposits and corrosion.
Part was fully disassembled, zinc plated & re-assembled.
When tank is full - resistance is ca. 130ohm's
When tank is empty - resistance is ca. 150ohm's
I think mostly it wasn't rust, maybe more layered oxydation sort of fuel/air/moisture mixture. That's why it came out pretty nice.I am completely amazed anyone could clean a sending unit that badly corroded to like-new condition--excellent work! I am also shamed, because I gave up and bought a new one, and mine wasn't anywhere near that badly corroded.
Also, I thought resistance was supposed to be ~3 for full and ~75 for empty. Or am I missing something in the values you're using?
If you have shop for cadmium plating - go for it. It's slightly more resistant for water/salt water if compare to zinc plating.Hi Wladek, that is a very nice zinc plating job, have you considered cadmium plating? I understand that it looks the some but it is more resistance to rust, What is your opinion on this?
