Severe piston ring and liner wear are experienced in two cylinders of a medium speed diesel engine shortly after a complete overhaul of all of the cylinders of the engine. The engine is fitted throughout with chrome-plated cylinder liners. What is the cause of excessive wear in the two cylinders?

Most probably, chrome-plated piston rings have been mistakenly fitted to the two cylinders.
