    So I bought a engine about 6 months ago. I pulled the intake and valve covers off. Since then it has been sitting there like that and has accumulated a lot of dust and lint on it. What is the best way to clean this off? I want to bolt the intake and valve cover on and run it.

    No seriously, a good vaccuum... maybe a clean paint brush to loosen it up as you vaccuum...

    worse case, wad up paper towels and close off all avenues to the bottom end and take a blow gun to it...
