Umm, you might want to actually read the opening post, as he's talking about how to remove PAINT FROM AN ENGINE. Most engines are not made of fiberglass. Sodablasting would work nicely, with little risk of damaging the parts in question.

NEVER sandblast...NEVER...at least not on fiberglass....soda blasting seems to be emerging as a preferred approach for a very smooth job if one can afford it...hand scraping and sanding is the usual way, but care must be taken with the toxic waste...Don Casey's book(s) on sailboat maintenance and repair give very good advice.

Please note, I'm not recommending that you sodablast the engine until you have it in separate pieces. If you're not planning on disassembling the engine...then sodablasting isn't the way to go.
