I've never used a gasket before, always just used the black RTV. But I also don't like scraping that stuff off, so I figured for $16 and free shipping I'd try it. Besides that seems that I have to buy a new tube everytime cause it somehow always dries out.

Scraping RTV is an absolute PITA. I changed the tranny fluid/filter on my friend's 4Runner a while back and it took forever to scrape off the old stuff, longer than I've ever spent scraping RTV before...

But I still use it of course

^^^ thats why its nice to use a gasket because the gasket is a lot easier to scrape off

Call me a pansy, but I didn't want to use anything that might get crap inside the transmission, the majority of the silicone was stuck to the transmission, barely any came off on the pan. And with what little Brakleen I had, I was trying to save it to make a clean surface for the new silicone

But for my diff covers, and some I've cleaned at my buddy's shop, I simply use the wire wheel on a grinder such as bigsquat does

Not calling you anything. I just find it faster with air. In hard to reach areas I have a different assortment of gasket scrapers.

I use these with the air tools. They are molded plastic and can be used on aluminum.
