You sure it isn't rust? The film strength will not lubricate that or any other part for 2 years. If it's rust (the dipstick is not stainless and will rust) then I would be very careful starting this engine. Drain the fuel, change the oil, and if you can remove all the spark plugs and just crank it without compression to build up non-destructive oil pressure would be the best case scenario.

Why did it sit for two year without being started. Obviously the battery is highly suspect. Many other things going on. Just one start for 10 minutes per month could avoid all of these problems.

Good luck.
