    I just had my head resurfaced, they took of .007 inches. Now i have metal shavings in my cylinder head. how do i clean this out?

    I have shavings in the oil passages and coolant jacket, as well as a little bit around the valve passages (in the intake manifold).

    is a chemical bath the only way? i tried using my air compressor to blow it out but it wont break loose. how do i clean these shavings out of my engine?
