if I just put a new au sump gasket but then had to take it off due to a leak in the sump weld would it still be okay to re-use again? it has a little bit of oil in like the grooves of the rubber gasket but that shouldn't matter and it still rubbery not hard.

Use Engine Degreaser, not Carby Cleaner.
