I degrease ONLY the outside of the timing cover. Never the inside or oil pump.

Today'* order of business, scraping the old timing cover gasket off the engine, and it'* NOT coming off. What should I use to soften it up? The razor blade just isn't cutting it. :(

Do you have a gasket scraper? Might be better for leverage.

You can get some stuff at your local parts store called "gasket remover". Spray it directly on the gasket surface, wait about 10-15 mins and the stuff will scrape right off. Don't get it on your skin! It burns like hell.
