Well, the best way, of couse, is to remove the engine, strip the parts off, taket the engine tin to a local powder coating shop, etc, etc. But you weren't really asking about that, were you? I'd take a little time arranging things: * Bundle wires together with garbage ties * Check that spark plugs are tight * Wrap the entire distributer in a large plastic bag * Generally plug holes and gaps with whatevers handy ... and let 'em have it with a few cans of Foamy Engine Brite from the local auto shop. Let it sit for a while, and hose down _carefully_ with a misting hose attachment. Also, detaiol shops often offer steam cleaning. I've seen one engine done this way, and it looked great!
