I reckon should be OK. But watch clearances, as the differentioal expansion between bronze and steel could cause a seizure when it gets to steam temperatures...I really wish I had access to cast iron now... How do you think steel cylinders on a bronze piston would do as a compromise?
But after steaming, wash through with WD40 - The FLUSH THAT OUT with a preservative oil. Car engine oil has a LOT of chemical stuff added, including corrosion inhibitors, anti-acids (WD40 is acidic and promotes corrosion if left too long...), etc. I use a light engine oil... (5W or 7.5W). Whatever I have for the car!
