To be honst, first engine im into, I cant feel any signs of wear in the barrells. Is there anything visually thats indicative of their condition? What exactly pn the barrells and pistons should I be looking for as signs they need replacing or are damaged in anyway?

Any info at all is appreciated, everydays a school day!
