A couple gallons of mineral spirits( basically the same as commercial parts cleaner) and a Rubbermaid container just a little bigger than the engine. dunk and swirl, With an air nozzle on the air hose and a "Y" on the extended tip(I use 1/4 od poly tubing), with the one tube going down into the cleaner, lower pressure, will be somewhat like a power blaster. Stick the other tube inside openings and it should wash the block out nicely.

That sounds like a good darn idea
