soda blasting. soda will remove and neutralize the oils and whatnot. I have also heard some great reports of a soda/bleach mix for alu. Gives a really clean finish (similar to glass) and WASHES AWAY. Media is one use, wash away after. The best part is no chance of little abrasive bits left in your engine.

I can forward you some info on it. I beleive you can use your standard siphon blaster to do it.

Interested in getting a dedicated set-up? Ace makes a cheap small blaster:

If soda blasting is a process where virtually any surface or substrate may be cleaned or depainted, I would assume it will be able to remove the clear finish on yer engine.
