I don't know if this has been looked at in previous posts, but, my DHG 159 was starting to get oxidation on the cast aluminum items under the hood. I mixed a bit of Cream of Tarter with water, about a tsp to a cup and used it on the oxidized parts. I soaked a wash cloth with the mixture, and used the damp cloth to wipe away the oxidation. I then rinsed with a clean damp cloth. It actually brought back the new cast look.
Try it!

Quick Fix. for Cast Aluminum.........

I was on my way to a car cruise and happened to notice that the cast aluminum on the motor was showing the wounds inflicted by storage during PA winters. I was looking through the Consumer Reports book "How to Clean Anything" and they suggested using Cream of Tarter to clean aluminum. It does work.........use a tooth brush on difficult spots.........
Good Luck..........hope other folks read this!
