Personally I would start with a selection of wire brushes on a 4” grinder if you are trying to avoid dismantling.

rotflmo ....PC naval jelly by the drum,wax on wax off.....see you in a year ,call bendover for discounts.A tank of por 15 would be labor cheaper.

I know you werent serious .coke by the gallon tub isnt much better.

wire brush and HF walnut blast, heavy or anything you absolutely dont want to take apart.

As displayed many xxxxx here battery charger and mild caustic dip.

Resident painters suggestion ? on acid etch/dip and clearcoat as is, since you cant even buy a non PC paint that will out live you for less than 2x $ tractor

photos/vids required!!

I believe naval jelly is phosphoric acid. And it works pretty well. Slather it on, leave it be for a while, then wash it off with water. But if you don’t put some kind of protection on the iron after that it is kind of wasted effort.

I think that is the path I'm taking. The wire brush on the drill made a good start.

Evaporust, but you need to keep it wet.  Drape with a towel and soak that.  It is the best rust remover out there hands down.  Nontoxic, won't eat non ferrous metal or damage paint.

It will erode metal if the oxygen gets to it. I had parts half submerged in it once and it etched the metal at the water line.

At distance , looks pitted ,( yes/no) ? 
 

wire brush as mentioned if your not going to remove it , good place to start , I’ve used purple power to soak it and power wash it to get the easy stuff then eighty grit Emory by hand sanding wrapped around stiff sponge 🧽

not a real good way ,you have to be willing to experiment , no rules here!

I use RUST911. Comes as concentrate to be mixed with water. I use a small fountain pump to circulate it and flood over the part. Small parts go in a pail. I've done the 38 inch rear rims from my H in a big plastic tray drained back to a pail with the pump in.

I do see it has gone way up in price though. Whew!
