It certainly would not hurt to do that. Most people would not bother but if you want to put in the effort, go for it. Most of the problems are a result of there being water in the cylinders that has leaked in through the exhaust but the way your engine is stored, it sounds like it is stored dry? It is still possible for everything to rust up but much less likely. Chances are if things move now, they will still move in 2 years.

You could always see whether it will bar over and make a call from there.
