What about something like Boeshield RustFree Rust and Stain Remover? Perhaps a multiple application to a specific area will give you the break you need to get the ball small enough.

Problem is getting the old one out of the chain locker. It won't budge because it's all rusted together. The limited access to the locker means the fix has to be chemical rather than mechanical. Acid would probably do it but fumes from muriatic acid would every toxic. I soaked it vinegar for 24 hrs and no improvement.
Need some other suggestions.

I've also discovered that the last 100ft or so of my anchor chain is rusted into a huge solid mass in the chain locker. I've sprayed a ton of PB Blaster on it and beat it with a hammer without much success. Right now I'm soaking it in Vinegar.
