if i was to take on this project, its try soaking the piece in distilled vinegar to try and kill the bacteria(rust) and let it sit for a couple hours. then scrubbing it with steel wool and an oil like wd-40. then wiping it clean and applying Lanocote Anti-Corrosion Grease.
this is a marine grade grease that is used on plumbing, boats, etc. works for years on salt water applications. its just like wool grease. so it sticks better and lasts longer.
or you can clean it with the steel wool and oil, clean it with alcohol and then simply spray it down with a rubber agent.
