    If you are referring to the cross-hatching marks in the cylinder then that is normal. If you can get access to a bore gauge then it would be worth measuring the bore taper, and piston to wall clearance. If not, the cylinder looks in pretty good shape from the pictures, so you can likely just scrub the bore using a maroon 7447 Scotchbrite pad with hot soapy water, and bolt it back together with a new piston, rings and wrist pin.
