Might be as expensive as engine degreaser though.
I had to do this exact thing to a 401 Buick GS motor and I threw it in the back of the truck (pallet w/fork truck, not quite threw) and took it to a car wash.

That cheap degreaser through an engine cleaning wand is really nasty, you'll be breathing suds if your not careful, and it makes it hard to breathe. Enviromentally freindly does not equal human friendly :|

I can't stress enough the importance of wearing rubber gloves when using it full strength. You'll think it's not that strong, but after 15 minutes of cleaning, all oils will have been sucked out of your skin. Also try not to use it on plastic/rubber parts for this same reason.

For painting, I ususally clean the block up first and then sandbalst the painting surfaces, I've always had good luck with that method. Purple powr is the el chealpo stuff i was talking about at AuotZone! I couldn't remeber the name. Lungs beware
