Engine preservation

Is there a way to access the interior of the crankcase on a C65 or C85 without removing a cylinder? The engine is not mounted and I want to spray the inside of the crankcase with Tectyl 859B for long term storage. In order to use a modified plastic tube with holes or a garden sprayer wand I need to get it inside and move it around enough to cover the interior.

Also, does anyone have any suggestions about how to atomize the fluid at the nozzle...or any method of doing this better than what I've mentioned?
