I took my cross tubes off and there is a gasket where the elbow joint conects to the engine block. Any tips on solvents or removal products to get that old gasket off?



Thanks.

I used Berryman's B12 and a wire brush. Just get the gasket material wet, Berrymans can remove paint also.

3M also makes a gasket remover. I've used it before and it works good.:)

Guess I am from the old school... I just sraped it off with a razor blade scraper. Never had any fancy chemicals except gasoline and kerosene when cleaning engine parts. Saftey-Kleen came into our lives, and times were better....

It looks like if you soak the elbow joints in brake cleaner overnight that takes the gasket right off. I found a product made by Permatex that helped with the material left on the engine block.

I got the Permatex, then i used some 600 grit sandpaper with wd40 on it for some final clean up. I will give it a final wipe with some break cleaner sprayed on a shop towell.
