The engine is on the stand, (NAA 134ci). Engine and head completely renewed. Block mag fluxed,liners, pistons the works. Head new valves,guides,seals,seats, the works.

I have reassembled the engine. Rocker cover,pushrod cover,oil pan installed. I thoroughly wire wheeled the block to remove rust and applied Ospho and wiped dry.

I should have probably washed the head which was clean from the machinist before I installed it, but didn't.

I'm looking for ideas to Clean any oil residue off the head without having a mess of water or solvent get into every crevice below the head. I'm kind of confident brushing with a dilute Super Clean and wiping may be the only way. But just wondering what others may do or have done.

put some wax and grease remover, ie prep sol, pre cleano, 900 or what ever you use in your spray gun and use that to clean the head. use a blow gun
to dry it off.

your local body shop supplier or even napa or auto zone will have a similiar product. after you wash the block down wear disposable gloves to avoid
getting oil from your hands on the clean surface before you paint

Most solvents would work. Wash the engine, frequently changing rags until you get almost nothing on the rag.

Thank you all for your tips. They are well received. As to Brake cleaner, I do have a stock of cans and use it quite often. And going on one of your suggestions I did get a type of Pre Sol called Finish 1 FT200. It was pretty expensive for only a quart. If I ever get to the sheet metal it will come in handy for that too as well as cast wipe down.

So I'll add another question: On my generator, which has Alum. end plate and I had the bearings replaced, (brushes we good), has anyone painted the entire Gen. Red including the Alum end plate ? I'll tape the two oil wick balls for aesthetics since the bushing was replaced with a non-hole type that doesn't require oil.
