My oil filter

Well a few pictures of hibernation and the rest of oil filter. Not a pretty job but done with tin snips. The car had about 300 miles on this break in oil . Hope everyone is well and had a great day.

So is the paper filter element sprinkled with tiny metal flakes (looks that way on my computer screen)?

That is why it is important to change the oil often after major work, Now if the engine had some miles on it and that started appearing there would be an issue.
Next time squeeze the folded up filter element in a vice to get the oil out before inspection.

I am trying to solicit based on people's experience is this to much shiny stuff for a new build with 300 miles or is this to be expected and is it within the norm. The shiny stuff is it possibly ring material and part of the breakin process or do I have cause for concern. ?

No, that is common if machine work was performed during the rebuild. It is very hard to get all cut material out of every nook and cranny. Change the oil, check the filter again in 500 miles and see if it is clearing up. If it is then do not worry about it and do it again in 1000 miles to verify. If it gets worse then think about doing something about it. But that is not uncommon.

John, you have new pistons, rings, and replated cylinders, so effectively 100% fresh top end. It's normal to see shiny bits in the oil for the first few changes. It should clear up.

How is the engine running? Is the power meeting expectation?

Thankyou the motor runs strong and smooth ,however ,cold starts are tough if you do not message the accelerator for at least 1 minute also during this initial start the motor puts out an oil cloud till it warms up when running on sae 30 Planning to run some 20w 50 valvoline synthetic and maybe the thicker oil will minimize cloud on start.
