When I finished scrubbing, I put the heads on a slant so that any liquid inside of the cylinder head would leak out because gravity said so. I sprayed brake parts cleaner through all of the holes strategically (from cam holes first, then through the large passages that go from front to back). There was quite a dirty puddle of cleaner in the bottom of the cleaning tray I used, which was pretty surprising. The brushes + soapy water breaks the surface tension like a champ. I continued cleaning until nothing else came through.

I actually filmed each part of the assembly process (shortblock). I'm not a pro, but I followed the FSM and used it as a reference before giving any information in the videos. It'll take a while to chop them all up, but I think it'll be useful to the community.
Please post them this is awesome!
