any thoughts on removing silicone gasket material
What is the easiest way to remove the silicone type gasket material from the pump housing? there has to be some kind of solvent or something better than a razer knife...

Pure acetone and a 3/8" wide x-acto knife flat razor blade (the blade that looks kind of like a little chisel) worked great for me. I used the blade only and wrapped the blade mounting tab with a thick rubber band for grip. Too hard to maneuver w/ the handle on it.

thanks for the suggestion. i tried gasoline, goof off goo remover, paint thinner and none really worked. i was probably a bit impatient. I didn't have any pure acetone so I hit it with wire wheel on the dremel it came right off.

+1 on Kelly's method. I also found that using a small wire brush along with that helped too.
Well, or I guess a dremmel would work too
