Removing the gasket can be tricky as they are stuck to the cylinder base very well usually. I use a small acid brush and gasket remover sprayed into a cup and applied with the brush, be careful not to get any on the powdered texture finish and scrape the gasket a little bit at a time applying more remover as you go. You're trying to get it off without damaging the gasket surface (aluminum). Use new single edge razor blades and don't flip them over once you use them (burrs will be on the other side). Don't expect to use just one blade, use as many as needed to keep a sharp edge.
