During an inspection of a cylinder liner for a large, slow-speed diesel engine it is found to be worn in a cloverleaf pattern. The greatest points of wear are found to be in way of the cylinder lubricator holes. What is the most likely cause of this type of wear pattern?

Cylinder lubricant has too high an alkalinity for the sulfur content of the fuel.
