Is this the one with broke ring and piston cylinder damage?

I have a used 3400 cylinder you can have (just pay shipping) also has a muffler and intake still attached. Let me check it and see how much clean up it will need (you can do that right).
If I remember it came from a non running parts saw that had piston damage too.

I pulled the muffler to get a better look at it from other side too.

IMO if you can clean that bevel on exhaust where ring etc hit you will be good to go IMO. I would just take some emery clothe and or scotch brite pad and clean cylinder up after fixing the bevel area.
