How to clean an engine?

I bought an old OS engine which seems to have not been used for some time.
The engine does not seem to be damaged as it does have compression. From
the exhaust port I can see that the piston does have some brown stuff on it
which I am guessing is the castor. Should I try to take it apart and then
clean it or should I try to get some fuel into it and hope that it will get
rid of the castor.
