So I ordered an engine from a company and they sent it with rusted valve guides. Said company says its just surface rust and itll come off. My shop and some other machinist say its worse than that. 2 of them are really pitted. Im curious as to anyones takes on it, ive heard that itll be fine and also that it can end up breaking and ruining the new engine. Lemme know what you think

I am not a professional mechanic by any means but these don't look good at all. Surface rust?! This is a sealed unit, there is not supposed to be any rust in the engine. I would not drive the car if I were you and talk to the manager at the company based on the second opinion you obtained.

I'm truly sorry you had to deal with a shady shop...we all go through that at some point. Best of luck and welcome to the forums!
