Getting ready to go shopping for the tools you guys recommended for cleaning the mating surfaces and wanted some input on the items I am considering.

Since Harbor Freight is close by and has a "20% off entire purchase" coupon, I'll be buying as much as I can there.

- Scrapper: Carbon/Gasket Scrapper.

- Wire Wheels: I really don't know which one(s) to get. Wire wheels.

- Tap & Die Set: Harbor Freight has several sets with various quantities of parts. What's areasonable set? Tap & Die sets.

Also, what is the best way to get the grease and and crud off the intake manifold? Can I just use a wire brush and degreaser?
