I am swapping my spare engine into my CR temporarily, to allow me to check both motors out, in different ways.

I want to run the spare, see if any issues show up, and I want to look the original motor over closely.

In the process of getting it ready to pull, I dropped the sump screen which I checked at 7700 miles, and found a small piece of epoxy off of the perimeter of the rotor.

This time, at 12,500 miles, there's a bunch more.

I pulled the ignition cover off today, was able to confirm the rotor has the oil hole in the hub.

I gather from searching and reading that it's not uncommon for the epoxy to come off the rotor.

Does anyone know why it comes off? Is there a point where it goes out of balance?
Is there any risk in continuing too run it like this?
