    Sounds like a good job for a lathe and/or some easy-off oven cleaner first.

    Romero's polishing in el cajon CA did my brothers.

    This is what it looks like under water. I would never polish a pump that was ever going to go on the water. If it was on a v-drive where it never left the trailer you would be fine.

    Here is a pic of the pump that I polished for my TX. I dont even want to think about how many hours I have invested in it. I would advise that you have it done professionally if you have the cash, even though it is a way to pass the down time in the winter.

    Its a pain. I stripped all the paint, removed all the casting marks, and just started sanding with 220 grit. Once I worked it down to about 1200 grit, i broke out the buffer, I had plenty of black kleenex's after that. lol

    I started off with some clear coat polish, nothing too aggressive, as it will leave pits and deeper scratches than the sand paper. I used a wool pad on a buffer. Later I swapped over to hand polishing and a mothers powerball.
