    That is exactly what he did! I'm now scraping and cleaning, and it doesn't look like there was much of an attempt at removing the previous gasket(s). There are dips and crevasses filled with what looks like dried out putty, and lots and lots of the red RTV. I've had the car almost 30 years and never had a problem with carburation, so it worked; but GEEEZE!

    Looks like you have a lot of scraping ahead. I have used this product to help soften the rtv sealant. I let it sit overnight and it definitely made it a little easier.

    Thanks for the tip Fireman! Lowe's says they have it, so I'll pick some up on the way home tomorrow.
    Thanks again!
