Yikes! I diluted same acid by half and tried that on my genset heat exchanger. It instantly dissolved the gasket. I've shied away from doing it in situ ever since.

Yea... me too. I used about a shot glass to a gallon of water and it cleaned my genset exchanger nicely.

There are lots of things muriatic won't attack. It had no impact on the rubber from the inner tube I had cut to make a gasket on one end of my heat exchanger.
