Fine scratches paralell with the rings will hold a small amount of fuel that will cushion the piston from digging into the cylinder..just like crosshatches on a cylinder...
If I can remember...I will post a pic of the process on Monday ...it makes them look like new..
Here you go Ed...Its easier to show you than to explain it..

Sure you'll scrub a piston, but can the wife get you to do the dishes?

We stopped buying the blowers with controlls on tube. Seemed to be more trouble and cables cost more if I remember correct.
