  • Gasket removal
  • I have a 50 8N and have removed the lift cover and the pump. The gaskets are stuck on real well and I don't want to be too aggressive scraping them off and damaging the surfaces. What is the best method for cleaning them off? I found a 3M Scotchbrite product called Roloc bristle disc and wonder if anyone has tried them. They come in various grits from 50 to 120 and are color coded. I also see chemical products and wonder how well they work.
    Thanks.

  • I would use my maul but it's dull from the last gasket I tried to remove.

    Great picture!

  • I like to use gasket remover and plastic scouring pad on aluminum and just a wire cup grinder on steel or cast iron.

  • A scrapper and wire wheel. Just take it easy on the aluminum surface with the wire wheel. Scotch bright is good too.
