Cleaning Engine Cylinders (While assembled)
During the process of removing my head gasket some of the debris has grazed upon the tops of the piston heads. Its very very minimal at best. And I've gotten the few parts that have dropped down out. My question is: how harmful is this gasket material to the engine if a few minute pieces are left in there. Is there any way to clear them out via cranking over with oil/wd40? Basically I want to make sure my motor is safe and has no junk that can affect the pistons or cylinders.

Adam the first thing I would have done is turn on the air compressor and blow it out before moving any thing!

There was really nothing at all in the cylinder piston area except for a few specks of dust/gasket material and they were small at the least. I picked up everything I saw on the piston head.
Can this potentially seize the engine?

Can't worry about it now. I wouldnt worry about it, fire it up

when cleaning gasket surfaces I try to make it a habit of keeping the shop vac running as I clean.
but specs of dust and whatnot won't hurt anything.
