I used blue rtv to install a cross fire eliminator sight. I wiped off the excess then wrapped it with tape to get
a good bond. It worked except when I removed the tape some more squeezed out.
Anyone know what to use to remove dried rtv withing harming the bluing?

If some squeezed out after you removed the tape, you took the tape off too soon. It needs to set for 24 hours to be safe.

There isn't much that will touch silicone. Goo-gone will soften it a little bit, but it really has to be worked/peeled/rubbed off with your fingers to remove it all.

Blue RTV is one of the softest silicone you should be able get it off by rubbing or use a plastic scraper, credit cards work well, if you have a old card cut it to fit the area you need to clean up.

skeetman,
It squeezed out and dried under the tape so it is dried on the sight and rib.

I am not sure I really understand how much needs removed, but here is a tip I have used for years. I hate emblems.

I have cut a lot of glued on emblems from cars and motorcycles with dental floss and wd40. Bluing is tougher than paint. Pull the floss firmly against metal and saw slowly back and forth, the adhesive wears away and as you get under the glob, you have some leverage to lift.
