I really don't recommend that you do anything. That oil film, as dirty and ugly 
as it is, keeps things from rusting, and even if it didn't, once you got it all 
cleaned off it would just come back eventually.

There's a certain equilibrium point for dirt on an engine. Unless you need to 
tear it down to rebuild it, or find that there is a leak that needs your 
attention, just leave it alone.
