Re: How can I clean my new Cardone pump #276550?
My Cardone box looked exactly like that. First thing I did was just use a scraper and screwdriver to get the loose, thick stuff off, because there were places their black paint didn't stick too well. You can get the box wet; it is desgned to be under a car, exposed to road splash and all. I just wouldn't blow a bunch of high pressure water into any of the seals.
The plastic caps in the line sockets have o-rings on them, so no worries there.
After I knocked all the loose paint off, I chemically stripped the rest. Don't lay it on any thicker than necessary, and keep it away from the seals.
Then I just wiped the stripper residue off with laquer thinner and repainted it cast iron color. Much better than that nasty, thick black Cardone uses.
