    clean it first as u would the rest of the motor - but maybe use some fine wire wool

    consider using a medium grade then finishing off with the fine stuff

    polish it up finally with some autoglym, autosol or T-Cut metal polish

    this is how i clean the outside so the inside should be relatively the same depending of course on the quality/finish of steel used

    I use a metal cleaner called 'Peek' I just get an old rag and work it in & buff it off, doesn't need much effort and it helps when it comes to cleaning it next time, a have a small tin of the stuff which I brought 2/3 years ago and its still half full.

    00 grade wire wool and some autosol will get it looking perfect.
