Alright guys now that I have my water pump removed, anyone have a tip or trick to cleaning the old gasket off? It’s on there good and hard as a rock. Will carb/brake cleaner soften it up to make it easier to scrape off?

I like to use a lacquer thinner soaked rag to ease gasket removal followed by a razor blade type scraper.

I’ve used both suggestions as well as Permatex Gasket Remover.
