Couple thoughts on this...

The surface having some rust pits isn't going to hurt you much at all. Chances are it isn't all that bad because that surface will be harder than the hinges of hell. Hardened material is less susceptible to rusting bad. It'll rust... but takes much, much longer and even longer to get in deep.
Second thought is given the hardness... a grind would be more appropriate. Grinding is easier to produce the kind of finish you're gonna want. If you don't have a nice stout boring bar and a good tool on the end of it you're liable to create more damage than good. (chatter...)

Then there's the issue of removing too much stock. Not so much because of depth or adjustment issues but more due to the likelihood that that surface was / is probably just surface hardened. Surface hardening will only be so deep. If you remove too much you might get down to the softer tootsie roll center.

Myself... I'd scuff the surface with some fine paper or a scotchbrite and call it a day. Or... look for one in better shape if you're very uncomfortable about the pitting.

Some good points. I didn't think that the surface might be hardened. I figured it would just be machined cast iron like a brake drum. I'll clean it up and run it. If it chews up clutch rings really fast then I'll mess with it.
