Although, even with an engine completely dissassembled, its next to impossible for me to completely remove all the old varnish and isht short of grinding everything off. (1981 ea81 w/ 167k miles)

as for cleaning the top end, Seafoam is usually recommended for that. Some searches should yield more than you ever wanted to know about it

When engine is at normal Operatin` temps, remove Air Filter Box, and rev it to around 2,000 RPM`s, then drop Slowly a ounce of Water Right to the Carb, the Speed will down as the exhaust Emmissions will be Blackened...
When the Engine Returns to Normal Idle, drop other two Ounces, Slowly... And wait untill Engine back to Normal Idlin`
...Then Three, And Wait...
And so, Untill the Emmisions clear up, and It`s Done!
I think a Litter of Water will be far Enough...
it Work for Just Carbon Deposits, for Gum & Varnish, I use a "Motul Engine Clean" that mixes with Old Oil, 15 minutes before oil Change...
