hey guys... as posted in other threads, opened my stator cover and found it coated in rust.

I'm putting in a new flywheel, stator, bendix, etc...
The engine side still has a light coating of rust on it and I'd like to safely remove as much as I can.

What degreaser and rust remover do you think I should use for this?

The main thing I'm worried about is the rubber seal on the crankshaft.
