Does anyone or has anyone experienced axial grooves(crank to head)all the way around(360 degrees) a cylinder of a reciprocating compressor? This is our 3rd time this has happened. We're also breaking distance piece to cylinder bolts on the low end. Any experience on this matter would be great. I have a couple of possible causes, but if anyone has any suggestions or opinions that would help me narrow down potential causes that would be great.
