Anyone have tips on oil pan gasket removal?

Recommended Posts

What's the easiest way to remove the stuck on gasket adhesive (it's not RVT) from the block side of the oil pan? Engine is still in the truck which is on jack stands so I have to do it on my back. I'm scraping away and getting very tired! Thanks for any advice.


p.s. I do not have air tools.

I've had good luck with the Permatex Gasket Remover.

Apply, let it sit, then scrape.  The gasket kinda comes off in

layers, so you might have to apply until it is all off.






I have not tried the 3M wheels bit they might me

helpful along with the scraping.
