Hi there,

If it is just a little surface moisture, give the bores a good soaking with oil or a penetrating spray, the engine should turn easily with out the head on, just start rocking the engine a little to start it moving, if there is any rust marks in the bore you will need a mechanic to inspect this first hand to make an assessment of any damage done.
