Long story but there is dirt that fell into the throttle body when removing the air box and the throttle was stuck open which enabled the dirt (which was of a sand like form) into the cylinders. I know anything in the engine is unhealthy but how bad of a situation am I looking at? Is there any recommendation short of removing the top half of the motor that might help?

Thanks in advance for any helpful input.

I would try using a shop vac to suck out the sand, if it's still dry and isn't sticking to anything. Really is something I would remove the head for to clean since sand can do some nasty things to valves and cylinder walls.

:+1: Shop Vac FTW. Works like a charm (I've done this before), anything it can't get out will blow out the exhaust without too much issue..... Hopefully :thumbup:

Go with the shop vac and see if you can borrow an inspection cam to look inside before you start her up.
