What is the best way or any tricks to remove parts of a gasket (i.e. remaining parts of a gasket from a clutch cover) and the left over sealer? I've got most of the main gasket off but pieces of the gasket are still stuck to the cover. Any insight would be appreciated, thanks!!.

razor blade and wipe it down w/ acetone to get rid of any gunk that won't come off when you're done.

I carefully use a razor bladeonthings like clutch covers and such but if you are not carefull you can do more harm than good.


On steel i use a scotch brite disk on a die grinder.
Ditto.

Also, as much as I don't like to use them, chemical gasket removers will save the worry of gouging your gasket surface with a razor, if you lack the skill to hold the blade flush with the surface while scraping.

Thanks for all of the input and ideas, I discovered that a combination of the stated methods work best. I began using gasket remover (spray can)and a razor blade works pretty well for the majority of the task at hand and then I use a scotch all purpose cleaning pad or steel wool pad (fine steel) to finish the job.
