I've had great results using Citric acid solution - adding cheapo wallpaper paste powder gives a gel like consistency so you can daub it on larger items see pics.

I thought I'd combine with electrolysis and after fours hours the inside of a rusty fuel tank was as clean as a whistle.

They've come out nice I have a similar Villiers cowl that would benefit from the same treatment, also putting clingfilm over the gel will help stop it drying out too quick.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.
