He used a piece of thin cardboard as a shield for components he didn't want painted, worked pretty well. Steam cleaning the engine will at least allow the paint to stick and get the major crud off.

Certainly do-able.
cool idea, i would have never thought of that, but my engine needs paint kinda bad, i'll have to try that
