Use your Shop Vac -- you can rig a smaller piece of hose to it with some tape and such and then go poke around the engine with it.

how much and how big a pieces are we talking here? If it's just a small amount of little stuff I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just do an oil change and coolant change after you get it up and run it a bit. If it's larger stuff or a lot of it that may pose more of a problem but I still would just get it out the best I could and then do some fluid changes after it's up and running. For the coolant you could even just flush it with water to save you some money of putting coolant in there for the flush.

As long as you do not have pieces bigger then 1/2 inch and not metal attached you should be ok. Just change the oil and anti freeze after break in and monitor your gauges and you should be ok. Hey, it happens.
