Thanks to Choke on Smoke for his post with all the pictures walking through the gasket change.
So far I've scraped off the big pieces of the original gasket with a razor blade. Then used a little bit of acetone and scraped off the remains. Next I used a 3M pain remover inserted into my drill to get all remaining gunk off. I never realized how non uniform the edges of the BGE are until today, not sure if it's just mine or they are all that way, but I can see and feel dips and rises in sealing surface.
I'm now wondering if I should hit the surface with a little sandpaper to make sure it's roughed up enough to fully adhere with the glue? I have heard of some doing this, but others not so I'm assuming it's not a huge deal either way.
Also, should I wipe with anything to get all the dust out of the pores of the ceramic before gluing?
Final question, I bought the Permatex copper, but looking at the glue that game with the Rutland, it says it's rated to twice the temp of the Permatex copper. I'm planning to use the Permatex still I guess, but seemed odd that the Rutland adhesive was rated to much higher temp.
Thanks in advance for any last minute details,
