flushing polystrene from powerhead

i had a the quickest overheat ever yesterday while cruising out the marina. the temp guage flew up to about 170 yesterday no tell tale so i shut down real quick .lifted out to day and dropped the cle box checked impellor allfine removed the covers and the cavity was filled with polystrene balls blocking any flow. i,m worried i may hace them in the power head. i flushed from the stats down, the water tube up. put a vacum on the poppit valve hole and flushed up. any thoughts on how else i can clean the engine

Speed costs weight so what do we cut off first
