Default Removing an engine seal. Help?

When I sealed the carb of my engine I did it the wrong way, the servo didn't get a straight pull afterwards. Can I take the carb off the sealed engine, somehow remove the old seal off the carb and seal it again? How would I remove the seal, using my fingernails? Thx!

if you used lucky 7 it'll peel off with your finger nail or a razor blade. Also use L7 as a external coating, not like a gasket. Good Luck!
