Last time I bead blasted a set of cases I spend more time getting out the bead than I would have cleaning the engine. The problem is the bolt holes. It gets in all the bolt holes, you think the engine is really clean after you wash it off...go do bolt it back together and there is grit in the holes. Just takes a little to trash the aluminum threads. Can be done...but the washing has to be very very thorough.

There's always walnut shells...but I haven't found them to be very effective on things like the outside of cases. Better than nothing though.
