RTV removal
« on: September 24, 2016 - 07:18:03 pm »
having trouble scraping old black RTV off of head intake ports.
Found out CITRISRTIP paint and varnish removal dissolves it off
with some agressive rag rubbing.

and if you let the stripper sit on the rtv for a while, the rtv
peals off easier too.
