The only way I approve of for removing sludge from a block, is a complete tear down and cleaning by way of hot tanking and bore brushing. Obviously, anything that can be removed from the block can be cleaned and put back on with no worries. Breaking sludge loose with any form of chemical method is asking for trouble IMO. I would much rather leave the deposits in place as long as they aren't restricting oil flow.
