      Hi

      Was taking apart my spare block and found this:





      Two bits of broken metal from the long block

      Should i be worried? or is this ok to rebuild?

      Any help appreciated

      Thanks

      Looks like a valve broken into several pieces?

      Not a valve, i think the the rods hit the side of the block at the bottom of the piston champer

      two chips missing from the area circled below



      I checked further yesterday and looks ok, no more chips coming off it

      Going to take it to a machine shop and have it checked out

      Just back from the machine shop

      The piston does not come close to that part so was told its all good

      about and inch and half above that i can see the marks from the bottom of the piston rings

      worrying for no reason i guess
