Take them to a head repair shop, they have hot baths that remove all of the scum and leave them like new.For a price of course.

i dropped mine in a tub of strong alkalie solution for a week then hit therm with a pressure washer , repeat steps until clean , worked real well , follow it up with a kero wash so they dont surface rust in a hurry then assemble ,
