The problem I would have is not knowing how much of any element would be normal vs. abnormal. That info might be supplied by the testing facility or somewhere online. The bearing type/materials and the other things like piston alloy, etc. should be known to see if those elements showed up, but the amounts
of these elements in the sample (PPM?) would be the stumbling block for me.
yes good answer , but be confusing by seeing levels of something and then getting answers as to whats the norm !!
will ponder on that one hmmm
