Hey, I have this coarse crimped wire cup brush and is that okay to put on drill to clean the mating surface on block.

Also I'm installing a reroute and how would you clean the rear of head housing. The gasket is really stuck on there and hard to get off even with a blade. Can I use the same wire brush here on low? Would make life easier to clean it.

For the block it's fine.. iron don't give no cares. On the head...

yeaaah...kinda if you are incredibly careful. I would use a new razor blade (never underestimate the power of a fresh one) and clean it with some very fine scotch-brite

What he said. I wire brushed the fvck out of my block before painting it. No issues. I wouldn't use it on the head at all. Razor blade and elbow grease. If using scotch brite pads I would lube even with just water. If you go crazy you'll never get a good seal.

I think he means the mating surface.

I would use a brass brush. You will definitely take some material off the block with a steel brush. It might not be much, but use a brass brush anyway.
