Rust on Piston Pin!!
Hey guys I have finally gotten around to putting my 383 SBC together. I bought an entire brand new rotating assembly about a year ago and had it stored inside. I have just started putting it together this week and low and behold..... RUST!! It doesn't look like a major concern but about 4 of my piston pins have very very minor surface rust spots on them. I have used very fine emery cloth and solvent to sand these small rust spots smooth. I can run my finger nail down all of the spots and it won't catch so I think it isn't a big problem and I am just overeacting. Please let me know if it is a concern or not, keeping in mind that my finger nail won't even catch on these spots now.

Use steel wool and motor oil. It won't scratch the part like sandpaper will.
