How much metal would be normal in an engine with about 200 miles and run on a dyno? I tore the filter apart today and there is some in the all the pleats. I ran a magnet across it and got metal. I also have a magnetic plug, and found metal on it when I removed it. It was covered in little slivers. This engine has already had one rebuild with about this many miles. Had 3 rod bearings fubar'd and ruined the crank. I am afraid it is the same thing. Before it was knocking and didn't run good and ran hot. This time I am getting it running really good, no knocking, and running cool.
I am about to loose it. Let me know what you think. I am going to put some miles on it and then try changing the oil again and see how it looks.
