So the mottled appearance is normal? Is it the bronze coating being removed exposing the grey material or vice versa.?
Will honing expose more of the grey or more of the bronze?
I assume that the grey material is not the steel packing.
These small end bushings have been in the engine about 60000 miles.

Thanks for the comments about the mains and big end bearings.
I am going to replace them but it seems weird that the clearances check out with the 60000 mile bearings.
