Question about mark on cylinder walls

 I was changing the spark plugs on my 150 today and decided to shine a light down into the sprk plug holes. I noticed the lower cylinder had a back line in the same exact spot as the other cylinder. It looked look you took a pencil and a ruler and made a straight line. The walls looked good and a was amazed at the amount of cross hachting these engine have. The mark did not look like a groove just a mark, It was odd it was in the exact location as the other side. All spark plugs looked good and the same. Has this been seen before? I tried to take a picture but could not get it to come out

take a compression test on all the cylinders if you are concerned

 I finally got my phone just right to take a picture of the mark on the cylinder walls so you could take a look at it and see if you have seen it before. I do not have the tool to do a compression check but I may take it to the dealer if you think I need to.

Re: Question about mark on cylinder walls

 Hello Bill

 I am suprised you cant see the black line in the upper right part of the picture of the wall. I talked with a BRP Platinum certified dealer and the mentioned sometime the " locator" pins can be just a tad long and can mark a cylinder wall but they want to check it out. Can you tell me where I stand with my warranty E150DPXAAC  Ser#5380433, am I still under BRP or B.E.S.T, if not can you tell me when the B.E.S.T warranty kicks in as I think it has a $50 deductable. thanks again

[ Edited ]

 

I can see a black line but the image is not in good focus so it is impossible to be certain that it  is a groove in the cylinderwall from a dislocated pin or a harmless carbon  mark that is from the piston ring gap. If it is not a groove cut into the cylinder, no worries.

 

What is your model and serial number?
