What material is this and how can I clean it?

Hi guys, so the mounting foot and other pieces of my Yanmar 4jh3-hte are rusting pretty badly, my guess is that the material is steel but in my ignorance, I'm not too sure.

How do I go about cleaning it, do I scrap, brush, sand, apply phosphoric acid, and rinse? if yes, after that should I apply some sort of coating to avoid future corrosion?

Thanks

Re: What material is this and how can I clean it?

Looks like a lot of salt water spray has got in there. Wire brush it all, (by power tool if you're brave or by hand) use a rust converter on it, and then keep an eye on it. One of our members has a signature that says, "rust never sleeps", and my, oh my, it is so!
