    yeah, just dont shoot a hard stream at it

    mist it all down, hit it with 50/50 simple green/water. scrub it down with an old towel/rag/brush

    and mist to rinse it off, whip down, and use your favorite engine detailer

    Some sort of large medium-bristle brush would be good, like the kind they sell for cleaning wheels.

    If you like me and you don't want to risk it, than take it to a detailer. They have insurance in-case they destroy anything. How did you get it that way?

    After you get the bulk of the mess off with simple green and water, I suggest you use Gunk Engine Shine. You can actually use the Gunk before to break up any tough grime, rinse off, dry, and then go back with the Gunk on a rag to get the details. Should be able to find the Gunk or something similar at your local parts store. Good luck with the clean up.
