on a cast iron manifold you should be ok as long as you don't lean into it
on aluminum, one split second too long and you are looking to get manifold resurfaced
whenever I clean a manifold surface, I always check after using fine sand paper on a long flat block of wood to make sure manifold is flat and true
are you running on a drill or die grinder?
I like the plastic disc with the little nubs on it, will not remove any metal
Is that what everyone uses? Ive been using wire wheels on a die grinder for that kind of stuff. :brownbag
This is what you need. Both Advance and Oreilly should have them in their paint/bodywork section. Its a pad that your drill can use that has new scotch brite pads that screw into it
I may try a nylon brush again but I'm not counting on it working. Your making me paranoid now.I've personally only used wire wheels for removing large amounts of crap. Maybe I'm just paranoid :shrug That being said I so use the more aggressive scotch brite pads but go over it one last time with a fine one
I also dont have the luxury of air tools so I went for what was easiest to use on my drill
I tried basically the same thing but smaller and for a die grinder.
Some dumbass at ace convinced me to get one of these but its made of like rubber. Most useless thing I've ever used. Can't even clean off dirt
