Will Oxalic Acid Damage Brass HE?
Hi all, I am fabricating a new exhaust mixing elbow for my universal m25xp. I had to remove my heat exchanger in order to get the old exhaust off, so I figured that I would have it cleaned while I have it out. When I opened it up, it was virtually clean, with a very small amount of crust on the tubes. Can I just soak this in vinegar or oxalic acid? It shouldn't take much. I hate to drop it at a radiator shop if it really doesn't need it. BTW, it is made of brass.
