your procedure with muriatic acid right on, i use it full strength on small parts and to disolve rust inside antique motorcycle gas tanks i restore. you have to neutralize it with baking soda. but i'm with oldred, muriatic acid is nasty stuff, if not COMPLETELY neutralized, the rust will come back almost right away. try phosphoric acid or electrolisis, muriatic acid on big parts is impracticle. oldred knows his stuff.
