Razorblade. I have a scraper that uses a single edge blade. It works great. It's hard to gouge the cast iron housing, but possible, so use caution. Carb cleaner or GOOF OFF helps get the small leftovers off. I used Blue Prematex RTV to reseal mine. No drips. I also used a can of brakecleaner to flush out all the old oil and junk from the housing. You can inspect the gear teeth and bearings better. Also you can see if theres any metal filings that may be glued to the bottom.

Awesome! I love it when a 6 year old thread is brought back to life!
It brings back memories otherwise killed off by the adult beverages.
