    I have a set of pr3 Pistons that are standard size and notice that they have small gouges and dents in them.....some are around the bottom of the skirt which can be removed or sanded down without removing much material. The ones I'm concerned about are around the piston ring seats, the gouges are no more than 1/16th of an inch deep but they all the way down the side of the piston ring seats. Will the rings still seal properly if the pistons are lightly sanded perfectly round again to remove all high points caused by the scrapes and gouges or are they trashed?
