Match piston with correct liner and check for scoring (arrows).  Wear of this type could be caused by engine over heating,  or  foreign  material  entering  cylinder  through  oiling  system.    Check  for  any  cracks  or  other  obvious failures.  If any defects are found, replace piston and liner as required.  If no defects are found, proceed to next step. b. Visually inspect piston.  If piston ring face and ring land have excessive wear, replacement is necessary for both piston and liner.  If no defects are found, proceed to next step. WARNING Compressed air used for cleaning can create airborne particles that may enter the eyes.  Pressure will not exceed 30 psig (207 kPa).  Eye protection required. CAUTION When  washing  pistons,  always  use  a  stiff  bristle  brush,  not  a  wire  brush,  to  loosen  carbon residue.  Failure to observe this caution could result In damage to pistons. c. Clean  pistons  with  hot  water  and  liquid  detergent,  soak  pistons  in  a  50  percent  solution  of  liquid  household detergent  and  hot  water  for  30  to  60  minutes.    Use  a  stiff  bristle  brush  and  loosen  carbon  residue.    Dry  with compressed air. d. Carefully use a stiff bristle brush to remove all debris and scale from OD of liners.  Make certain there are no nicks or burrs in areas where packings will seat. 3-188
