It ends up being a lot of work if the clutch bell is packed and grooved with aluminum. This means the shoes are slipping a lot. Like rossoh10 said, might be easier to get a new clutch bell. If it's not too bad sandpaper, dremel (with wire brush), there is some kind of cleaner that works too. But I can't remember what it is or who said they use it. But it's supposed to eat up/soften the aluminum for easier (not easy) removal. I'll look around and see if find something.
