sunsetdart You will much better off using a scotch brite wheel on a disc. The brass will remove old gaskets and carbon but it will alos mar the aluminum.

cleaning aluminum heads and SS valves

Is it okay to use a Brass crimped wire wheel on a die grinder to clean old gasket material and carbon from the mating surface of aluminum heads.I tried a small area and it looked pretty good. I would also like to clean the carbon from the valves using this method

Please advise
