You probably all know how I like to raise a daft query, well here's another one for you!

The inside of the stator assembly on my RD350 has a fair amount of corrosion on it that I would like to remove. Whilst the armature is meant to come out, this is unlikely to be a straightforward task. My question is this, if I was to soak the whole combined assembly in Evapo-rust, will this damage the armature? The stator is devoid of the majority of its fittings (points, condenser etc).

Many thanks.

I really don't know. I do know it doesn't effect paint not sure about rubber or shellac on the windings or epoxy. Sorry of no help. Maybe experiment with some cheap battery powered electronics first such as a motor. If the device still works after a soaking 24 hours, rinse and air dry you should be good to go.

I work with shellac all the time, nothing more than shellac flakes and denatured alcohol. I would think any solvent would eat right through it.
