I went through this a few years ago.
Clean everything:
Remove the case plugs and clean the oil galleries.
Clean oil the oil lines
The Factory says to replace the oil coolers but you can get them ultrasonically cleaned by someplace that does them for small aircraft (FAA certified). I used Pacific Oil Cooler.
Remember, the bits of metal that are lodged in your oil coolers got there while the oil was hot and the car/engine was vibrating. Rinsing them out with solvent isn't going to cut it.
