hot tank? what to do

Ok I took my engine apart. Its a 1990 5.0
everything is off now and there is some rust in the coolant area. Inside the block.
my question is. How can I get this out.
I heard a few things.
hot tank.
Water pressure.
And I heard about this liquid but I forgot its name. Some shop recommended it but I forgot who and which shop.
has anyone had this and what did u do.

You could always have the block acid dipped by a shop. It'll take it back down to the bare metal by removing every possible contaminant off. It'll come out looking brand new.
