Razor blade or other sharp type of scraper .
Then a good clean with some type of cleaner , I usually clean with paint thinners .

When you have the surfaces all nice and clean and start to assemble, make certain you have the head gaskets installed correctly. The consensus is that the original steel gaskets are to be avoided in favor of the composition gaskets.

Scotch brite shouldn't be used, the particles it sheds are abrasive.
