hello again...

I got the report back from Blackstone labs (3 day turnaround) - the only thing out of whack (and it's a big one) was the lead content. (I might have been seeing lead flakes.)

Universal averages are 3 for a change interval of 1,900 miles, mine was 9.

The commentary said it is suspected that I have a particle streak through the bearing and further evaluation will be in order in another 2,000 miles (about 11 months for me)

Could this be sloppy rebuild from prior owner?

Any input regarding the prognosis of my engine's life expectancy is greatly appreciated.
