Factory glued on separator plate gaskets

Postby cktrans » Thu Mar 24, 2016 9:19 am

Does anybody have a good idea to get the glued on gaskets off of the separator plates? Some of them I can let soak in the trans case cooker hot water and it will lift the gaskets loose. The cooker doesn't do anything to loosen 4T65E and some others. So I wind up using a razor blade for part and a 3M cookie for the rest.

I used to have a 5 gallon pail of carb cleaner ( Mugnus I believe ) and soaked it in it .

I soak them in the cooker overnight(if possible), then use my air scraper with a wide blade. Slices them right off. Then a little cleanup with the roloc disc.

I like to just replace it with a new factory glued plate because they seem to be very affordable or I just reuse them . Otherwise I just use my scotch-brite sanding disk, a dust mask and I go outside.

Dave is my way too. We had a 50gal drum to soak this stuff. Used a Mac tool stone sharpened scraper and a 3m buffer. Dave we use too use carb cleaner in a drum too soak that f&^ken gummed up C-4 units clean. Strip a unit, and stink for a week! Remember those days! No Latex gloves back then! Wife new when I was working on a gummed up Ford. LOL!

I still had a can of the aerosol spray here ( probable at least a 10 year old can) it was Permatex Gasket Remover part # 4MA, Item # 80646. I don't think they make it any more.
