pretty much like the titles says i have noticed when removing the head you get that gasket graphite embedded on the surface of the head and block, is there an easy solution to cleaning/scraping it off quickly. will need to know when i do this, i could practice on this other block i have i just need some input.

thanks in advance

i used a scraper to get off the bulk of the material and then switched over to a rotary tool with a wire brush attatchment.

If I dont have a scraper handy I will use a razor blade but always being careful and having patients.

Be careful not to damage the surface with any hard tools

I used brake cleaner and shop towels to clean mine.
