The factory manuals say that cleaning it off is unnecessary, that the new loctite will reactivate the old stuff. I've never dared try it (and I don't suggest you do either) but I always wondered about that.
Don't get the gasket remover on anything painted - it took the paint right off my engine yoke once.
