Default WARNING about steel intakes

For them as might order painted motors with steel intakes, be sure to inspect the piston if the intake was not painted along with the motor. Got three in that had the piston stuck to the cylinder wall by dried paint.

Didn't have a camera available till today, so only got a pic of one that wasn't as bad as first two.

1200 grit will polish it off.
