Mike, If I understand what you're trying to achieve, try this:

Select the Mech layer you wish to delete by either clicking on the layer tab
or cycling through the layers using the + or - key.
As a precautionary measure use hot keys X, A to deselect all.
Use the hot keys S, Y (for Select laYer) and all the items on the Mech layer
should be selected.
Use Ctrl+Del to delete the selection.

Cheers
Brendon.
