Im guessing I will need all sorts of brushes to do this as well, and maybe tackle the bottom of the engine as well, what would be good to remove any rust etc?
that + brushes + spray bottles + rags to wipe up with a Big skip full of elbow grease is what i use

Water is from one of the garden pump sprayer sorts,, so Very low pressure , low volume And due to the long narrow spray handle goes only where i want it to,,
