carboman has a little shameless behaviour in the past
To seal it I would suggest a couple of coats of clear high temp spray paint. Clear (or any color) powder coat would be better but would require removal, ext. You'd need to thoroughly degrase and clean the parts before attempting any coatings.

Make sure to use BRASS brushes since regular wire brushes may gouge the aluminum. You can use very fine steel wool as well. Tooth brushes may not do much. You can dip the brushes, etc in WD-40 to clean the corrosion off. While you're at it take a look at the chassis ground connections and give them a cleaning if they appear at all corroded.
