So anyone have a killer way to get residual head gasket gunk off of the engine surfaces on my 3.2 DOHC? I am using a mild scotch brite pad and wd-40. Working pretty good, but SLOW.....

Thanks!

Dont think it hasnt crossed my mind..... If I could just hold it level..... :shock:

Has anyone used 3M Roloc white wheels for this application? I read some other websites that guys have had good success using these without damaging the surfaces....

I used the 2" discs w/ 1/4" angle grinder. Did great. I still used a few single edged razor blades and I finished off with a few good wipes with lacquer thinner. The discs greatly decreased the labor time. Just don't let it sit in any given area long; especially the cylinder edges.

You really are not supposed to use any sort of friction or power tool to clean the surface. The gasket remover might be the only thing along with a lot of tedious and careful scraping.

No power tools! It's VERY easy to distort that aluminum surface.

I used a gasket scraper and took about 2 hours per side when I helped a guy do his head gaskets on a rodeo it was a pia but that was what we had
