Anyone have any suggestions as to what I should use to clean the block, pistons, and cylinder walls?
By cleaning the cylinders, I hope you mean honing! You really should run a hone through them before you reassemble. The pattern is needed to properly break new rings in. A shop can hot tank, clean, and hone the cylinders for like $150. Well worth it.
