Yup the red liner needs to go.

Burn it out then wire brush it out.

Or sandblast it.

You'll have a good workout removing it..

Fine someone to sand blast it. I did cost me $45. For the inside and out no burning required

^^^DO THIS.

Burning it out will barely touch the chit, and even using stripper takes tons of extra elbow grease to get it all out. I spent the better half of a day laying in my drum with a wire wheel on my grinder getting the last of that chit out-mind you this was after a hot burnout and a stripper treatment too- it farking SUCKED.

I'd gladly pay $50 to get it media blasted if I could do things over.
If only I had a DeLorean...

It needs to be removed and trust me and the others that have said the same. ITS A PITA TO GET OUT! Id suggests finding someone to sandblast it. If you cant than burn it a few times and get it real hot than get to work with a wire cup brush or flap discs on a grinder or drill. If your using the flat lid dont burn that as it will warp it.
