Drmini is bang on ... these bushes are for the bin, so if doing arms and the like , dip before rebushing and new bearings.

Caustic - what affect on the bearings.


Just So You know' caustic ( sodium hydroxide ) should do no harm to ferrous metals
However it is destructive to a lot of non ferrous metal

The old guy I used to work for had a 44 fitted with 2 aquarium airators in the bottom. Worked a treat, no scrubbing, just rotate each day.

What sort of stuff can we use on the cooling system if the engine is in the car and running. To get rid of rust and crap etc.
