    best way to remove rust from flywheel??

    the fly wheel has more rust than before due to moisture in the shed. Its a bit heavier than surface rust and is on the inside and outside... What is the best way, steel

    Soak in WD-40 a day or two, steel wool what won't come off with WD. Always good practice to spray the flywheel and stator down with WD-40. For those of you who don't know WD stands for water deterrent, great rust prevention!

    Actually its Water Displacement. And it was the 40th formula they tried. I believe NASA or someone came up with it. But like already mentioned, soak it in WD40 and then steel wool the rest.

    I use Dawn dishwashing soap and a Scotch Brite Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge. It seems to get the rust off well with some elbow grease and I think it doesn't rust as quickly afterwards. Anything you wire wheel or sand will rust 2 seconds after the first time it gets moisture on it , unless you hit it with some WD40 just after every time it gets moisture on it
