Nothing will dissolve it. All you can do is chip, cut, file, sand, or grind it off. Be careful though, you don't want to get into the core. The forms need to be nice and smooth or the insulation on the new wire will get scraped off.

I plan to do mine soon. If you're redoing the lighting poles then yes you need to take the metal wire off of the plastic stator pole. Once you get a piece of wire started you should be able to pull the rest . Be sure not to touch and scrape the ignition poles!
